    dyno tuning is the best way to tell, however.. generally more power is seen by advancing the intake and retarding the exhaust cam on a naturally aspirated engine. i'd try +1,-1 and drive around for a while... then move them to +2,-1 and see what it feels like.. you are basically shifting your power band around the rpm range
