you can only go like one size bigger on a 2.3 cam due to the clearance in the head. anything bigger and youll need machine work done.

go to the link that was suggested up above and contact them @ delta they know what they are doing and you won't have to guess.
if you call them ask for scott or john. they have been racing these engines for yrs.

not much without stroking it and porting the hell outta it and alot of other machining, turbo is the best route to get the most outta 2.3s far as i know.

Cam is a waste of time and money, N/A.

If you go with a delta cam, you need to run lash caps or your rocker arm geometry will be all messed up, and you could potentially have problems.

The 2.3 has one of the most complicated rocker arm geometry setups of any engine. You have measure the base circle of the cam, Stock vs. Mod. and make the difference up with lash caps.

Even though I like delta cams, and have used their cams quite a bit, I would not put a reduced base circle cam in a 2.3.
