    My best suggestion would be to call your favorite camshaft manufacturer and let them recommed a cam for your application. They will ask all of the details about your truck and engine and make a recommendation.:waytogo:

    Need some more info such as what your cruising rpm is, what rpm range you want most of your power, and anything else about the engine you can think of. Also be sure to include what kind of springs you have to establish how much lift you can run.

    I order all my parts from Unlimited Products. They specialize in chevy and have great prices.
