Default help with a cam

as i was taking the 318 appart i noticed plastic in oil pan. so long story short it ended up being the oil deflectors on top of valves have broken appart on most of the valves. not a real big deal but i also noticed the dampner was out of shape. so i removed that to find a loose timing chain. so since i have it all appart now i mine as well put a little bigger cam in right lol. i have a 2400 stall, stock lower half 318 with about 80,000 miles. i dont want to go to crazy but i dont know much when it comes to this stuff. i am looking at a summit sum-k6901 cam and lifters. what do u guys think. i dont know what the stock 318 cam is when it comes to lift.
if i run this cam do i have to go with different pushrods or rocker arms?
do i have to change out valve springs?
do you have a better cam recomadation because i am all ears. thanks for any help

That looks like a pretty small cam (well larger than stock anyway), and you probably wouldn't have much trouble with your stock hardware.. Make sure you get some correct oil for breaking the cam in or you'll just be pulling it back out again.. Needs to have zddp addtives in it, and most off the shelf oils just don't have it.

spend the money on some good brad penn or joe gibbs breakin oil. its worth its money. about 6 or 7 a qrt but like littletrucker said you need good stuff on break in and that stuff has alot of zinc in it. you dont need additive with that. thats the only oil we will warranty an engine with at our shop when it has a flat tappet cam.
