265 Cam.
More lift and less duration. Duration moves the power band to higher RPMs. Not ideal for your situation, IMO. But, again, depends on your gear ratio. Making power at 7k RPM won’t do you any...

Yes, it is actually better for the sprockets and chain to do it your way. They will wear slower. It is just cheaper to swap the front sprocket. It only costs $15 to replace the front sprocket.

Black mamba Jr- I ran 26 lb springs. I turned at least 7k RPM on my mini with torque converter.

I think the 265 cam wants 22lb springs.

Make sure the 18lb springs you get specifically say for Hemi Predators. The Honda / clone 18lb springs won’t fit in the Hemi. They’ll coil bind and you will break stuff.
