Default Please educate me on cams...

Can someone please educate me on cams? I'm trying to find a good cam for my car but I have no idea what the different specs mean? What's good and what's bad? Any info would be great! Also I'm thinking of going with a gt40 heads and probably an aftermarket intake (TF or edelbrock probably) what would be your suggestions for a cam? I'd like something audible with good power. Thanks!

You might want to do some reading then.......

Cam Truth
Camshaft Selection

After which I recommend you check OTS Custom Cam Special or go with a custom cam for your setup.
