Default Lets talk Cams

So as with anything there are many different options for a cam. Ive got a 05 QC 4x4 Hemi. I want a bad ass sounding cam that actually has practical performance. Im going to be putting in 4.10s soon and I still have stock heads. So i guess im looking for a mid range cam. I know weight is a HUGE issue here. Got my sights on the Spartan and Comp 268... Any advice will be welcomed


Pacesetter mid tubes, Intake, Diablosport, stock heads, gears soon to come

The Comp260/268 series seem to be the popular choice for our heavy 4x4's. Someday I'll get one!!!!!

I got Comp Cams to grind me a KRC 210X cam... I'm more than happy with it, aggressive sound and awesome torque. Needs a custom tune to run though, mostly for idle. The Comp 260 and Sidewinder cams are supposed to be pretty good for heavy QC's too.

Yea I just emailed them a copy of the cam card with all the specs, they put it in their system and sent me a copy of what they put in the computer to verify that everything was what I wanted. I ordered the custom grind and it was at my door 4 days later. Their customer service was excellent. It was a little over $400 I think.
