Thinking about getting a mild cam put in the truck. Anyone have any suggestions to give me better low end torque and a nasty sounding idle? Thanks in advance!

That sounds pretty bada**! Would doing a cam swap require a custom tune?

Do you want a mild cam or a nasty sounding idle?

From what I've read a Tuner isn't needed but preferred, I think if you went with a Baby Spartan you'd be alright but would really benefit from a custom tune if you went with the Spartan and you'll need to upgrade your pushrods for any of them according to Inertia's site

Nevermind, I did a little research and found it to be .472/.460 lift and 260/268 duration. (just in case anyone else was curious)

If you want lope them you will need a tune as well as some work to the heads to support the higher lift for the lopey can. A mild can will be a straight swap and the computer can adapt to a point but a custom tune is preferable.
