I run a helix 2. A lot of guys are switching fletcher's cam though, its even higher lift, but you can still get away with street driving it and not cutting the pistons.

Greg's max spool is supposed to be pretty good too, and I've heard some pretty mixed things about hamilton's cams. hope this at least points you in a direction, or gets you started.

Yeah, a helix will work just fine. The bolt on cam gear is a nice feature too.

I'd stay away from the laser cuts personally. I'd run either an 022 or 024 DV. 5x.018's are huge for the street. Who's pump are you going to run? Charger will depend on what class you want to pull in. 2.6, 2.8 etc... 2.8 and 3.0 class trucks aren't too street friendly.

Hamilton Cam's Big Stick is also another great choice for a streetable set up. If you need specs on the cams let me know
