Default Best Cam for the 5.9l.

I need some opinions on what the best camshaft is for the 5.9l? I would like some nice performance gains, and a nice choppy exhaust sound.
thanks
ryank

best idea would be to talk to a cam company, tell them what you have done to your truck or want to do to your truck, and what your truck has, and what you want it to do, and they can make a custom grind.
People could tell you a cam grind but it may not go well with your mods.

So...give Hughes Engine, Comp Cams, VooDoo Cams....etc a call to get you the best performance. And, best of all, they're not that much more exspensive then some off the shelf grind.

Prepare to sacrifice some fuel mileage to get what you're looking for. Herbert, Lunati, Crane and Isky all make good cams as well.

i added 1.7 HS and it gave me a nice gain and a nice sound in the exhaust . you can feel it pick up and go in all RPMS.
