Engine rebuild cam question

Getting a basic engine rebuild kit and it doesn't come with cams and lifters. I'm wondering if I should just stick with standard cams and lifters or get a better one.

If basic rebuild and all are good no need, just remember which lifter goes were.

If going to get it retuned for new cam, yes upgrade cam, lifters, rockers, valves, springs and pushrods, as in now would be the perfect time.

If all else fails get a bigger hammer!

Now what would be a better cam, but not overkill if that was done?

Call a few cam manufactures, give them the exact specifications of what your engine is going to be built to.

Then decide based on those recommendations.
