i know this is kind of random, but why arent there performance camshafts out on the market for diesels? they are all over the place for every gas engine, but there only seems to be re-grinds for diesel.

that question's been buggin me for a while now...
thanks in advance

Welcome! I was thinking the same thing about the custom grind bump sticks. I had one in my mustang, and thought, although the diesel has a "loppy" type of sound, I want to cam it out!
