if you arent chasing Kw (a good thing if you still want daily driveability), a mild cam would do the trick nicely. you get a little extra lumpyness, but not at the expense of loss of power down low.
a lot of people make the mistake of chasing dyno figures, but then go to drive the car at low revs 'normal driving' and actually find it less responsive.

as already suggested, speak to different specialists to see what they offer.
take less note on power figure claims, and more on where that power is made in the rev range. since you arent looking for straight out power in a tight rev range, look for a cam that will give you what you are looking for in a lower rev range (but still sound nice).
you dont want a top heavy dyno racer that is useless for daily driving.
