Default Cam + Dyno + CMR Tune

Well after all the mods that I have been able to do myself, it's time to brake down and pay to get a cam put in. I have a quote from a local performance shop (TES Performance) to get some more power squeezed out of my Hemi. Heres what they have proposed - Being that I have 3.92 gears they recomended to put in a higher horsepower cam then a low torque cam since off the line is not really a problem. For $1,500.00 they will install a custom ground cam, 6.1 Hemi springs, Head Bolts and gaskets, install my new NGK spark plugs, write a custom CMR tune for my Diablo Sport Predator, and Dyno it. At the same time for about $200 more they will install new high flow cats and when writing my tune, turn off the rear o2 sensors. I think the pricing on this sounds pretty good. Is there any other questions I should be asking them, because I personally don't know alot about cams only that I want some more power and a mean sounding lope to my truck! Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

You have a lot of ram to move and i personally think that 3.92's is more mid-top acceleration than low.
So the $1500 includes the cam + install and accessories + new plugs + Dyno and CMR tune. Sounds like a good all in one package price.

How many tune revisions do you get?

Depending on what you do with your truck should determine the cam type you use. I myself will probably be looking at a good mid range cam. Check out comp cams or inertia motorsports.

How many rune revisions is a good question! I will be sure to ask. Thanks I would not have thought to ask about that.
