yes the HO ones... sorry

I am in the process of putting my 4.7l together right now and considering it was apart I looked into the cam swap. I work for chrysler so I get a pretty good deal on parts, unfourtunatly the right camshaft is on backorder and the nearest dealer was in california somewhere and I didnt want to wait for it.

*edit* I misspoke... the front cover does not need to be removed, you do need a wedge to keep the tensioner from expanding, some patience and a knowhow helps too!

Re: 4.7 Mods Suggestion - Performance

first question is what do you want from the cams? What other mods do you have and what are your future plans?

Re: 4.7 Mods Suggestion - Performance

it sounds like the oem HO cams and beehive springs are what you need. Any good mechanic can install them in a couple hours-3 hours. The intake mani doesnt even need removed.
