That small cam with the huge throttle body and a blower is a dog. There's over 100 HP waiting with just the cam change. I don't know what to tell you - if you want to make big numbers you do it with the big cam, and you lose the nice, subtle idle.

More boost=more power=more tire spin with a truck with mudders,etc. Could you hook up 572 HP? You want more? Good luck with it.....

Have you ever seen the inside of a truck SFI intake?

V6 pictured:

There are 8 spider tubes in there on a V8 that just kill the power/flow above 4,000 rpms....I might concider a bigger cam if someone made a aftermarket intake kit that was smog legal in CA I know Edlebrock makes one for pre96 truck...wish they would make one for us!

I have a friend up in UT who is running the same engine and SC bu runs the next stage cam and still passes smog but he's up at 4400 feet which helps it pass.
