Cams are bigger and compression ratio is higher(10.5:1) therefore the calibration is also different.

a side mounted supercharger will fill the void you have with your low power.

Cam swap isnt worth the hassle for the boss. It has 4 overhead cams so it really is making life difficult and expensive.

Power seems a tad low ( maybe an honest dyno) so it might be time for the forced induction. You can get a centrifugal kit for around 5ish and a Positive displacement unit from around 8k+.

Other than that maybe a diff gear change and perhaps a custom tune (if u dont have one) may be the only other options.
