If you are going to do all the work, youmight as well do it right and get a good RUNNING truck as well as a good sounding one. You don't start the project by first raising the hood. You start at the back end. Determine the size tires you are going to run- it effects engine speed. Now, what gear ratio are you going to run- it effects engine speed. What transmission are you going to run and does it have and will you be using overdrive- it effects engine speed. NOW, pickup the hood. You now know how fast to turn the engine and at what rpm you need the torque and hp band. You can go to any of the cam companies web sites and they can give you what you need.
Hope this helps.
