5.7 VVT Cam

Post by thedriver21 » Sat Jul 29, 2017 6:05 pm

Anyone running an aftermarket cam? If so how well is your truck performing? Looking at doing the Comp Cams 266 Cam sometime by the end of the year. :drool: Wouldn't mind having the fastest Power Wagon in Cali :D

That's going to be pretty sick. Are you running a 3rd gen or a 4th gen? I know the 4th gens have the "Apache" head on the 5.7s and they supposedly flow really well for a stock head. I was told that the cost to benefit ratio of porting the heads on my 2013 wouldnt be all that good if I just run a mild to moderate street cam unless I wanted to do forced induction at some point.

3rd gen with a 4th gen motor, so yes it's apache heads. I'm going to do a fairly aggressive cam and long tube headers so I figured why not lol. There will be a loping idle and I'll loose a little low end torque, but it'll scream up high which is where I tend to play
