Is there a cam that is compatible with stock ECU?

Looking for a little boost in the 1500-4500 rpm range for towing. Nothing outrageous. I was hoping that the otherwise stock engine might be able to handle this?

i got a used stage 2 cam from them a few years ago and had it put in my 87 2.3
along with the other mods, i swear it had the power of a 4.0

but since you want to keep it stock, i'd just go with a stage 1 cam...nothing extreme
you can keep most if not all your internals stock BUT
you'll have to get your ecu re-tuned for the cam to get the maximum performance out of it

I had actually looked at the Racer Walsh, Esslinger and Crane cams from Summit - Just wasn't sure if any of them would be of any use as a drop-in replacement.
