^this.

also, sites like passionford.com, which are UK based, may provide better assistance to tuning and specifics associated with your supercharger kit as we're US based and have a different aftermarket.

Welcome though! Pics?!

generally most performance cams for NA applications have too much overlap between intake and exhaust lobes. This will cause losses when you are pressurizing your intake. (pushing your air out the exhaust)
there were some special grind forced induction cams that went around for a bit with high lift but minimized duration. i dont know if they're made any more.
