In the process of building a new car and plan on ditching the A2W and c16 and run non-intercooled M1. Will the fuel change require a camshaft change in a max effort setup? I'm building a new motor so different cams are in the works regardless. Just curious if the fuel change will require some different specs. If so what changes will need to be made?

In my experience no as long as the heads and the rest of the combo are up to the task. I would encourage you to run a head that has a very good flowing exhaust port. On a max effort combo I am willing to trade a bit of intake port flow to get a better exhaust port. Everyone is so obsessed with super high intake flow that the exhaust is forgotten about and basically neglected. It don't make a damn how much you can get in the cylinder if you can't get it out. A head that flows 450cfm+ on intake and below 300cfm on the exhaust is not a good turbo head IMHO. You can't cheat the cam as much on a turbo engine as you can a supercharged combo. The pressurized exhaust on a turbo engine can get you in trouble with excessive reversion much easier than other power adders. Post or PM me some details and I'll be happy to take a look at it for you.
