Default What makes a good nitrous cam?

I'm curious as to what makes a good nitrous cam and what I should look into. Currently I'm considering the Steeda 19 and a Lunati nitrous cam. I don't want anything to extreme, as this car is my daily driver. Any tips/suggestions? Thanks!

Exhaust bias.

So would a steeda #18 work well for this then? Specs:

Life: .480 with 1.6 rockers
Duration 220/226 @ .050
112* lobe seperation.

those to statements contradict each other. i had the lunati cam in my car and that thing is radical. that is unless they have several which i am sure they do.

my lunati nitrous cam was 560/576 300/310 110
