1999 Mustang GT NA + Future Nitrous cam selection

Hey guys, I have a bolt on and 3.73 gears 99 GT right now. The car made 260 rwhp and 300 rwtq. I have toyed with the idea of throwing a 100 shot on the car next, and then down the road doing heads and cams and building a shortblock. But i am now thinking about doing a cam change next to wake the car up a little bit NA and I figured it wouldnt put nay stress on my weak ass bottom end. I don't have all that much money to spend, so I was wondering what you guys thought I should do? Most of my buddies have LS1 and LS2 cars.... all of which eat my car alive.... If you suggest I do a cam change first, what would be some good options for a good NA cam, but will also work well with nitrous down the road.... Also what would I be looking at for gains with this cam when i change it. Feel free to step in and tell me what my best bet is. Thanks guys.

Rob

We have basically the same bolt ons except the exhaust. I have a zex wet kit and I play back and forth with 100 and 125 shot. With the 125 I ran a 2001 Z06 from a 40 roll and within 5 seconds I was pulling past him and kept pulling untill we backed out. The Z06 had Kooks full length and Borla Cat back and CAI and a custom Tune. If you dont mind taking the risk of Nitrous, I think it is the best power for the money. But like I always say thats just my thought..
