    Not enough with that cam to make it worth it. Get longtube headers and work on your launch. With a 3600 stall and 4.11's you should be able to pull a pretty good 60' time. That alone will significantly lower your times.

    Who's your tuner?

    A guy named glenn from OKC. It is not dyno tuned. Just a live tune using a laptop like Justin at blackbear does. Would a dyno tune work better? It seemed to run a whole lot better after just that

    Stick with Glenn. He can dyno tune also, but I GUARANTEE you that tune is pretty close if not perfect now

    Ok I figured it was. I heard he is pretty good. Does anyone happen to know the specs on the hot cam? I can't seem to remember and would swapping out cams be a big difference? If so what would everyone go suggest?

    There are definitely better cams than the hot cam. 218/227 .525/.525 the 220/220 or 224/224 seems to be pretty popular

    Do you know what lsa it is? It sounds really good but just want more power. Would a custom grind one like a .220/.224-581 112lsa work good?

    The hot cam is on a 112, its a good cam, just old and out dated. One of my buddies has an 03 with a 224/228 .581 112lsa with stock manifolds and 4.10s and it runs really good. Depending on what you want to do, there are alot of different off the shelf cams that work good. Look at a company called Engine Power Systems or even Texas Speed. I personally like the looks of the tsp 233/239 cam. Most will tell you its too, but they're retared hahaha jk

    What kind of power gains would I see with the 224/228 cam compaired to the one I have now? And I have to ask, my truck gets 20mpg now on the highway how much would it drop?

    as far as mpg goes...I have 4.56 gears, 30" tires a 231/242 .612 112LSA cam and I get 19.5-21 mpg. Thats gonna depend on how much time you want to put in your tune, atleast it did for me anyways

    I think you would pick up 25-30rwhp with a new cam

    What about the Truck Torque 3 from EPS? It seems like it's a cam for everything I have done. What do you run in the quarter? Thats a pretty big cam isn't it?
