Cams ordered, is a tune needed?
I have a 2011 Ram 5.7, and atm there is no way to get them to tuned, if i were to put in a comp 268 cam,the comp beehive springs, and the
comp cam push rods, if i put this is before the predator is out for the 2011's would it throw engine codes and or hurt anything? i wanna predator :(:( not where im getting the stuff just showin the stuff

also i realise i put cams in the thread my bad... lol my inner vtec kicked in sorry haha

That does not sound like a good idea at all! Cams definately need to be tuned.

Im under the impression that you can't put a comp 260/268/273 cam in a 4G?

916Timmy 07-25-2011 05:45 PM

I don't think so either....has to be an Arrington or Inertia "Eagle" cam

Doesn't the new hemi have some sort of special lifters that are collapsable for VVT? I also think there are issues with cam swaps due to this...

epic fail. fml. what would u suggest for a sbrc 2wd.... lol im new to dodges but usually dont pull things this dumb off lol....

Wait until tuners come out. Only small bolt ons until then! :)

Nope, you cant install a cam without a tune or you will blow that motor up, without a doubt!!

And I wouldnt hold your breath cause I think if they ever do crack this code, its going to take a while .... Like at least another year:smiledown:

DS is "working on it"

but they have no projected date yet! :(

REALLY glad I scooped up a leftover 2010....had no idea about the tuner issue!

Dont think Comp cam will work in the new trucks.
