    It's a 302. Basically just look for a roller cam that suits what kind of driving you want to do with it, there are dozens of choices. Best thing to do is to e-mail a cam manufacturer and discuss it with them.

    I've got an e-303 cam in mine, but there are better cams around that are just as mild. I'd be better off with something that didn't move my torque curve up like this one did, but it works fine for highway driving.

    You can get a custom grind for not much more money than a generic off the shelf performance cam runs, or there are plenty of good off the shelf cams.

    My cam makes my mounty run like a 2 stroke. Just watch want you get. I have heard that a good tune will bring the torque curve back down though.

    Is that with the cats in place and muffler off, or no cats. Did it have turn downs at the time. Pretty wicked. Nobodys expecting an SUV taking off and sounding like that.
