I ordered the 6.4 SRT cam today... Up here in Canada it is just over $100 bucks. I am planning on doing the swap in about 2 weeks. I am doing the cam, headers, intake, e fan etc all at the same time... sadly we got 10" of snow today!! So spring is a little ways away yet..

I have a toasted 2010 5.7 that i am going to take the valve covers off and rotate to see how much room is left over to allow for the extra lift from the SRT cam. there is only about a 3 - 4 mm difference, So my mechanic thinks that we do not require new springs.. or new pushrods. I just want to make sure that with the new cam the springs do not bottom out... so I will know this weekend.
I will take pics and post them along with my results. I am doing everything at once so i will not be able to tell how much just the Cam swap would help.. But.. I am going to do a before and after dyno test..... so that should be interesting..

stay gold pony boy.
