Default Cam and Tune Question

So I have a completely stock 03 Roush 380R, I know Roush ECU's cannot be tuned but in the future I would like to put new cams in it. The car is a daily driver and I want a smooth drive. What cam could I go with that would give me a slight power increase and a little lope while retaining the Roush ECU? any opinions would be greatly appreciated. Also I have heard BBK is the best intake to match the Roush/BBK throttle body is there any others. The main mods I plan to do are intake and 8lb pulley. I would like to do cams though. I'm on a budget so I don't want to get into head swaps and all that right now. Just a good streetable cam. Thanks

The Roush PCM can be tuned, I have done it with Delta Force Commando--the only "gotcha" is that you first retrieve the "stock" Roush tune, and consider it as being the stock tune for any further changes...

Engineering is, at its base, making what you want from what you have.
At its extreme it is making what you want from what you can get.
