I wanted to do a cam, but my budget started getting tight once I found out I had cracked the block so I had to find a new one.

Also decided to redo the exhaust since I have the headers, I am going with all stainless, with an x-pipe and dual stainless magnaflow mufflers.

I am also thinking of going with a K&N FIPK to help get more air in the motor since I have helped get air out of it.

I am hoping after this rebuild I will have a dependable tow rig for many years to come.
Where was the crack? And do you want the old block? Also as far as a cam, even comp has a limited selection in cams for the V10 magnum. Personally the V8 5.2L magnum can make about 505 naturally aspirated horse power in addition to 478 ft-lbs of torque. So if more companies invested in performance parts for the V10 magnum, imagine what kind of torque you could expect.
