What are you looking to do with the truck? What other mods do you have planned for it? Just curious because if it's the truck in your sig and that's all you have done to it, a cam would must be a waste of money.. If you are rebuilding your engine and going with some head work and bigger injectors/turbo etc then I would go with a cam from gear head I will be running one of Matt's cams whenever I buld the new engine for my truck

I want a new/different cam for better fuel efficiency. I understand it will be pricey to have it done, but that's something I'm willing to deal with.

In addition to the mods already on my truck I'm looking to add a GTP38R, 6.0 trans cooler, intake plenums, intake manifold, FRx, HPx, valve body, & HPOP. I've read that some guys think that the plenums & manifold don't do anything at all, but I'm just trying to allow the engine to breathe as easily as it possibly can.

Thanks for the advice.

If you are going for mileage, your money would be better spent on getting a set of stage 1s and some custom tuning which you would need with the cam anyway to get the most out if it, the parts you have listed oughta get you a little better mileage. What are to getting now for mileage?
