You can get a cam custom ground to however, wherever, you want the power. The possibilities are quite essentially, endless.

Skunk2 doesn't make a cam for your engine.

I think custom ground is your only option. Plus you don't want a more aggressive cam in a daily driver anyway IMO.

Bisimoto, Rocketmotorsports, Webcamshafts, JGE - can all make you a custom profile on your camshaft and yes it will be a regrind.

I'm putting a stg2 from bisi in my car in a few months.

i personally think you are wasting your time with a cam for that motor, its going to cost alot of money and in the end it will still be slow. for the price of a cam you could pay for a good chunk of a nitrous kit that will get you way more power.

Since when is $300-400 a lot of money? Upgrade the cam, geta tune, and put down what a H22 does for almost a 1/6 the cost.

You could get a used nitrous kit for that much, but you have to run 91+ octane and it costs $50+ to fill the bottle, even then you can only get so much out of a bottle for so long and its only usable in a straight line.

With a cam you can still run 87 and put down the power to keep up with what someone else paid thousands for just an engine swap and the same Hp as your stock motor with more torque.
