What he said. Careful on the cam with those gears. Barry will know what to do, if you tell him what you have.

The stroker is a good option.

If you changed nothing other than the stroke - same cam - the bigger motor should be just as happy at 1600 rpm as the old one was at 1800 rpm, therefore, you should be able to add some cam to the new engine.
