Without tuning, I'd be very careful. A bigger cam can cause a lean condition. My hemi wouldn't start or run with the cam that I have until we tuned it on a dyno, once we got it started. Here are some specs= Intake duration: 263 degrees Lift is .538" Exhaust duration: 274 degrees Lift is .538" LSA= 112 degrees. Once tuned, it's smoother than stock. I'd talk to (hemifever) he may be able to tune the 318 and he may have a suggestion on a cam.

No computer mods necessary. Works well with your stock rpm range, but a considerable kick in the pants with .480" lift. Don't forget the matching valve springs.
