Performance Camshaft?

Has anyone tried installing a performance camshaft on a ZJ? What was the cam, what difference did you notice, power and sound?

you cant get too aggressive with the cam selection or the PCM will have fits. i opted to go with a different rocker arm ratio(1.7) to get more from the stock cam.

I'll bet a stock niner cam in a OBD1 5.2 would work well. I say this because my 95 w/5.9 swap runs strong with the stock computer.
