Im planning to get cam yes, Im looking at spartan cam, mufflex 18" and an E-cut out to go with this, all in one whack

Awesome. Its going to feel like a completely different truck. I wouldnt go over 3200 though so that you can keep the computer happy. These trucks start to act finicky when you start going higher than 3200.

The Pro Billet is overkill for most trucks. I only recommend that converter to the guys with built motors, or those running alot of boost or spray.

The billet 11" is more than enough.

Even then, I would still be confident in the billet 11". Only real reason I see to go with the 9.5" is if you want to run higher than say a 3600 stall. I used to run a 9.5" 3600 stall in my 03, and it was great. I also ran the billet 11" wit the exact same mods, and it held up just fine as well. No point in spending more than you have to in order to get the job done. Over the past 7 or 8 years, I can count the number of converter failures on 1 hand with the 11" converters.

Also, typically with a smaller diameter converter you get more loss in power to the wheels. That sort of goes hand in hand with higher stall rpm.

Watch out with the spartan cam, I have a few guys that's said that cam really didn't perform, I would prolly do a sidewinder or hellfire cam, a lot of ppl are happy with that and comp 268's! I run a sidewinder with a edge 2800 and I'm running 8.70 in 3000 da, this winter I should be down in the 8.30 to 8.40 range, and that's in a 03 quad cab
