Default Debating a Cam Change and few things to add to my set-up

Well first things off I am thinking of swaping my cam out. I am going to spray my car this year and not really sure if my cam is suited for that or maybe it is thats what brings me to this post.

Its a Comp Cam 232/236 586I 587E 114LSA. I made pretty good power with a set of Trickflow 220 AS Cast heads. I am going to do a range of 100-150 shot. Im really not a cam person as far as for power adders if you all have any suggestions please by all means steer me the right direction.

Also do you all recommend me upgrading anything while I am basically going back into the motor if that is I need a cam swap. Still running stock oil pump, stock chain, and stock lifters. Like I said this thing runs hard right now its a low mile car as well too.

I think it will be a good cam for spray and I would change the timing chain and valve springs if it has many miles I would change the oil pump also

Springs are new. So just timing chain. It has 48K on it.

A cam change will make very little difference on that size of a shot. If it is low mile I wouldn't worry about anything else.
