Dealership prices are always "weird"

You can get a 6.1 very cheap from members. Just gotta seach her and other forums. If you are having a dealer install cause of your concern for warranty then expect "weirder" prices for install.

Duane is good but i have seen used 6.1 go for less than a 100 shipped.. Once custom tuning become available for most years then some were even giving them away for only the price of shipping.

the mopar 5.7 performance cam isn't worth the time and effort for a cam that is only a little bit better then stock... the 6.1 is only marginally better, but, you can get it reground to spartan cam specs but keep the lsa higher to make the pcm happy and not need a custom tune...

I use to live off of Baine/Cherry in Newark last year. I live in Tracy now.

The Spartan cam is arguably one of the best performance cams for a ram hemi qc (i currently have one in my truck and am currently the 3rd quickest 1/4 mile hemi qc in most forums that I know of). Since you need to keep your truck legal (for warranty), you need a cam with about 114lsa or more to be pcm friendly, anything lower (113 or less) will require custom tuning (I think I'm at 112)..an aggresive cam gives you more torque and gives you the lopey sound..
