A 2400 still is not much of a step up from the factory stall, so it really won't make a big difference. The 273 Comp Cams is a high rpm cam, you'll lose quite a bit of your bottom end, which is where you need to keep it to move the weight of these trucks.

Looking at the setup, I'd recommend passing on it unless you plan to do ported heads, and run a power adder like nitrous or a s/c where you can take advantage of the higher rpm band more often.

If you want a good all-round cam with good torque and modest fuel economy then look at the comp XFI260 or for a bit more midrange the XFI268 would be the limit to my recommendations. The 260 will get you moving the best as it's bringing on power in the 1000rpm range where as the 268 you're looking at 1500rpm.

With either of those cams you can still use stock push rods and springs, but I would recommend upgrading to a set of 6.1L springs to add reliability to the valve train.

While you have the timing cover off, you could upgrade to a 20% underdrive pulley to reduce some of the parasitic losses.

That set up is not matched up at all, a 273 cam isn't ideal for a QC and it would need a 3400 stall at least. Pass on that for sure. I run a Sidewinder and a CircleD 2800 stall, it is a great all around cam, tons of torque and power all the way to redline. It is very similar to the 260. I would strongly recomend the 6.1L springs and pushrods, along with a custom Diablo tune.
