Default 360 Cam help

I have a 1994 Dodge Ram 1500 5.9l Magnum 360

I want to put headers on it, and a nice cam, and I will be purchasing the Mopar bolt on computer.

I have a question about the cam. Can someone please give me the specs of the a cam that I can put right in with no worries, and dont have to change anything else, unless I really have to. Please and thank you. Im new to the forumz and would like help about my truck.

You need to talk with camshaft manufacturers. Give them your vehicle specs, especially if you have any modifications. For example you've already said you will get the Mopar Performance PCM, which is your only tuning option for your year, which is OBDI. You'll have to let them know what your application will be (i.e., hp or tq, towing, daily driver, emissions, etc.). There is no "best", there is what fits your intended use.

Here is a link showing what the stock 5.2 and 5.9 camshaft specs are. You'll have to learn the terminology.
00 Ram 1500 ORE; 5" Lift, 3" BL; 5125 Shocks; 37" Toyos; R/T Camshaft; Mopar M1; Custom long arms, sliders and bumpers; 12K Synthetic Winch; LED lights; York +5g OBA

i wouldnt do bigger than a 206 duration set on a 112lsa + 4.. this should be a throaty idle with lots of torque build. the obdI systems are limited.
