Re: Easy way to increase HP on stock truck 390 before install
Realize there is no cam best for everything. If there was, there would be only one choice.
If you want torque and speed in town, 0-60 mph get a street cam (and maybe a 3.25 rear end). If you want horsepower at high end speed like 100+ mpg at the end of a quarter mile race, get a high performance cam, and the headers and intake and carburation and stall tranny that goes with all that.
Personally I think the former approach is more daily fun and is also cheaper while the latter, no matter what you invest, your wife's 2009 Infiniti will leave you and your hi-performance Galaxie in her rear view mirror. But everyone has a different goal with their Gals.
