Question Cam Grinds

I found a shop that can grind my cams, so now the question is....
How wild should i go? I dont mind loosing a little bottom end,
From what i've researched stock cam specs are as follows
M50TU
Duration 228 / 228
Lift 9 / 9 *mm

S50
Duration 252 / 240
Lift 10.2 / 9.7 *mm

Schrick
Intake - 264 degree, 11.2mm lift
Exhaust - 256 degree, 10.6mm lift


I wanna go a little more aggressive then the M3's
Thanks!

I'm also looking to have my intake cam ground, but with a profile - I don't have any options for cams since i have an M50 non-vanos. I do have 2 intake cams, so I only need to grind one (the other will go on the exhaust side). Any help would be appreciated!

If you want a chillcast blank ground, call Paul Burke in the USA. I can supply his contact info if anyone wants it.

Or just read this thread:

Thanks Mark. I'll send him a message. I'm looking at low budget options for now - just regrinding my cam as opposed to buying a new one, but I'll see what he can do.
