cam gears with your mods would probably add some nice whp but a exedy 9.8 pound flywheel is a great mod that can be done for cheap around 250 or so.. its up to you but i have no regrets on my flywheel

you have your block decked and your head milled and no camgears?defenetely get cam gears and get them tunned...with your mods; more important than the flywheel.

No need to remove the cams, but you will need to loosen the timing belt. Also keep in mind that you'll need dyno tuning to see any gains from adjustable cam sprockets - they aren't just a "bolt-on" part.
