Default Cam or gears

Im debating on which to do first cause the other will have to wait a while...

Either putting in a comp 260 cam or 4.56 gears

Any inputs as to which route to go?

Im looking for more low end/ street performance

OR any other routes that ya'll know of.

Another vote for cam.

You'll be very impressed.

Gears can wait.

Yeah def' a 260 cam or similar grind. 4.56's would really help move that barge but it maybe pricey depending on your budget.

if you pull your heads then new bolts, gaskets, oil, antifreeze, spark plugs if you haven't done them already. Suppose to run on a 93 tune until you get a custom tune.

Not knocking the Comp Cams...they are a good company...but have you checked Inertia Motorsports? They make some nice cams for our Hemi and they sell the parts needed to install them as well.
