I believe that the 6.0 and 6.4 motors use the same cam. At least RCD sells their cam kits as a 6.0/6.4 cam.

By the time you pay to pull the motor and tear it all the way down plus rebuild it with a new cam it would be cheaper to drop a new long block in it and call it good.

i dont believe any gains would be had with a stock 6.4 cam being it is more related to emissions.

They are the same. The American Ride has a cam in it out of a 6.0 engine.
