I wouldn't install anything that will kill low end power. Remember, the 5.9 is only an 8.7:1 motor. Any "lopey "cam will kill what little cylinder pressure it has.

I'd look into a roller(I assume yours is a roller engine), cam from Edelbrock for towing/RV set ups. We have a Ram 1500 5.9, with a single plane intake and Lopey cam at the shop right now. It's a DOG. Even with a blower. HUGE tires and no torque.
