Default Newb from CA.. lookin' for some camshaft advice!

Hey guys.. name is Brandon. Had my Ram for about 2 years now. It's a 2008 5.7 4x4. Not too many mods done on it yet.. Dual exhaust (side discharge), with Flow Master 40 series mufflers, Air Raid intake, 2" level, 20" procomp wheels, and 33" Toyo Open Country MTs

Question/advice needed... I want to get a performance camshaft. I've heard that if you get a Mopar camshaft and have Dodge do the install, that it won't void the factory warranty. Any truth to this? Also.. My Hemi has MDS.. is it even possible to do a factory install, having MDS?

I'd much rather buy an aftermarket cam and programmer/tuner but I'm trying to keep my factory warranty valid. So, having that in mind, what are your guys' opinions on the mopar cams?? I've heard they're pretty "mild." Any advice/suggestions?

I've attached a pic.. sorry for the crappy quality, it's a cell phone pic.. I'll get some better ones up eventually.

Brandon

Thanks guys..

Also, thought I'd add.. I'm looking more for sound than performance. Though, the performance is welcome! I'll definitely be adding headers at some point. Is that best to do before, or after installing a camshaft?

That's a good question and I'm sure Anthony with American Racing Headers, one of our supporting vendors here can offer you some insight on that: http://www.ramforumz.com/forumdisplay.php?f=210.

Welcome to the Z. Nice looking Ram. I don't have any advice regarding the cam, someone will though, I'm sure. As for the tuner, the Diablo Predator is very popular here. One advantage to is that when you need to take the truck in for warranty service, you can take the truck back to stock settings and the Diablo does not leave an electronic footprint.

We have a lot of forums for all kinds of topics, so you shouldn't have any problems finding a place to post questions.
