I just don't see the point in spending 800 bucks on a cam when a 60 dollar stocker has pretty close to the same specs! I'm piling up all the stuff I need for my truck, and as soon as it is completed and tuned...it will be here!

The 6.4 cam is in the .56x range compared to the .61x range of Comp. BUT...the 6.4 cam is good without the phase limiter that comp makes!
^^For the lope man!! ha.

Points well taken. I like the fact that the 6.4 cam is a factory part (I've seen aftermarket cams die a quick death). Another benefit to the 6.4 cam is that it should pass emissions testings without any hassle. What are your impressions on HHP advertising that the cam phaser limiter alone could add 20-30 hp? I'd guess that the factory cam phaser isn't solely in place to add power -- it probably has some emissions-minded function as well.
