waste of time IMO
if your going to cam it, then cam it. Put a performance cam in not a factory cam, make it worth the time. If your on a budget pick up a used cam from the classifieds
know what im sayin?

yeah i know what ur talkin about , BUT if i get a big cam (220+) im gonna need a stall , then im gonna need to get my tranny built , right now my truck is my DD and work truck so its not a good idea for me to go with a big cam and stall right now , and if its gives me decent power if rather have that right now and have my truck run mid-low 13's

run the very popular comp 212/218 with the PAC springs and should be just fine with stock stall and will net better gains for sure.

Well they told you wrong LOL Thats the specs on it, but I actually think the lift is 525, but either way it isn't what they told you... save your self some time and spend a lil more money and get a good nice cam for the truck. BTW your gona need a trans or at least a shift kit in there if you want it to last. I have seen your vids.. Do it right the first time...

Get you a 212 218 high lift which is a .558 .562 on a 114lsa
That is a great cam with a stock converter IMO
We can make it have alittle bity chop or idle smooth like stock
