Message:
Hello everyone,

I saw a HO magnum cam swap for about 250 bucks, brand new. I have a 04 Dakota 285ci. Would swapping the cam hurt my gas mileage provided I do drive sensibly? And would this require the use of premium fuel? Thanks for your replies!!

Do you mean the 4.7 ? I put the jeep HO cams in mine, didn't hurt milage; no need for higher octane. Typically it is higher compression or more ignition advance that can need higher octane; not a cam swap.

Lead, follow, or get out of the way

yeah the 4.7L did you have to do any other mods once you swapped cams? i.e. platinum spark plugs, injector swap, etc... I was looking to increase power without going too crazy....budget is kinda limited....nice Gen Patton quote by the way

Works fine by itself, or works well with other mods too.

Just the cams for low end, a chip or flash that advances the 4.7 ignition would also help across all rpm.

the 4.7 is a 287ci.

If you have a quyote for HO cams, cams AND LABOR, go for it. the cams themselves are now about the price.

Having all these many of these mods myself, I agree with the advice given.
