Re: Cams ??

Our OHV 3.8's only need 1 cam...thank god...those 4V boys spend some serious coin for their cams lol.

Generally the cam alone will not net huge gains...maybe 10-15hp. Obviously with head, intake, exhaust work etc. you'll see more gains with the cam.

It really depends on the application and profile of the cam. I'd imagine if your going for sound than you'll want a higer lift/duration for more lope. You'll probably need new valve springs along with your cam.

Re: Cams ??

The valve springs? Yes they do...Supersix also has a cam mainly for sound. Works great on lightly modded 3.8's that are looking for that lope.

I'm sure CompCams would have a cam for our cars...

Cam install and dyno tune is needed. Remember that depending on other mods is how much power and the sound. So keep in mind look around 500-1000 for this kind of work.
