Question pondering next upgrade maybe cam?

should i do headers before i do a cam? what is a good cam anyone can suggest my truck is a daily driver and i tow from time to time. would i lose reliability and engine life also do i need to do any fuel line upgrades? or should i just do a set of longtube headers first?

I would do the exhaust first, have a good foundation ahead of time. You can use one of the established torque cams or shoot for a custom order one tailored for you. Plenty of fuel pressure for your needs with the stock system. When you figure out what cam you're going to use, custom tuning will help you get the most from it.

I think you might be in the wrong section man. I say exhaust though
