I've ordered and installed a 350/218 cam with the recommended +10 sprocket from 3tech (http://teamswift.net/gallery/image_page.php?album_id=325&image_id=14177) It was an easy job, took me about an hour. When I was finished, I double-checked every nut and bolt, and I fired her up, timing light attached. Idle was rough, and low, at 600 rpm. Exhaust note was completely different. Much darker, and more powerful. There is also this nice "metally" (?) rumbling sound. I revved her a few times and noticed the throttle response, which was far better than before. Ignition was at 21, but no pinging. To be safe I put it back to 14, were it used to be. Closed the hood, and took her for a spin. The first few meters made a huge difference compared to stock. Lower rpm's felt more powerful than before, which I could also hear in the intake sound. I drove around for a while, and when I got to an empty road, I floored her. That was when I felt the biggest difference. First two gears are awesome :D :D . Pulls right to past 6000 rpm, and the intake is so loud that you almost can't hear yourself think. Third gear used to run out of breath at around 5000 rpm, but now she's still pulling, and the intake roar doesn't fade away as much like it used to. 4th and 5th are better too. Before, she maxed out at 145 and after some persuasion, reached 153. (I have even had her at 163 two times before, but that rarely happens although I try it almost every time :? ). Now I can reach 150, and the persuasion takes her to 160 :D
When I got home, idle was still low, and irregular. Then she stalled. Fired right up after, so I turned up idle a bit, and now it's stable. Although, with all the air she is getting now, I think she might be on the lean side, so I'm going to try the CTS mod, to see if that helps a bit. But for now:

MIKE, YOU DA MAN!!

I'm glad you're happy with it. Its a great combo for that motor, stock or modified.
Keep in mind that the map sensor will compensate. You might even be a little rich.
Don't be afraid to bump up the timing a little more, as long as it doesn't ping.

I don't know how much the timing is now, because of the lack of timing cover. Fact is that I can't give it any more, because the distributor is turned all the way now. Still no pinging though :? Idle is stable at 1000 after 'hanging' at 1500 for 20 to 30 seconds.

Just to let you know, I've driven 15000 km's with it now and it's great, worth every euro. I've re-adjusted the throttle stop and tps, turned the ignition back a little, and now she idles steady at +/-850rpm when warm. The only problem left is just a small one. Cold start is too rich, she fires up immediately, but I can't take off straight away, because when I do she stalls. Best case she keeps running on one, then two and finally 3 cylinders. What I do to solve this is just opening the throttle at startup, and keep her at 1500 rpm for about 15 seconds, after which I can take off without any stalling.

Thanks again Mike! :D :D
