    Yes.
    For the NPI powerband the Comp 262's are perfect and
    you will see nice gains too.With the Comp 262's you will not
    need to install new valve springs either.

    right on, sounds like the comp 262's are a good choice, and with the PI intake and these cams I should see pretty decent gains right?

    Are the 262s safe to run with a blower set-up?

    Yes, you should see some very nice gains with that setup.
    I know someone with that setup NPI that ran high 13's pretty impressive
    if you ask me for running the NPI cylinder heads.

    I would run the Crower stage one cams since they are more
    in the NPI powerband.If you do port and polish your NPI cylinder heads
    and install valve springs I would go with the Crower stage two cams.
    The Crower cams are pretty good if you ask me.

    There's a few good specs out there, but I also prefer the Crower profile.
