    You'll need a cam core to get one done. They're all regrinds. There is not a new performance cam for the 3.8 roller. I'm still trying to work with some inside contacts I have at Crane to get them, but it's not moving real fast.

    Anyway... umm... without porting the heads, you're pretty much wasting your time. The stock exhaust ports suck.... period. Have some mild bowl work done and maybe fully port the exhaust if you have the $$$$. For a good daily driver cam, call Comp's techline and ask for a 210@.050" intake lobe and 220@.050" exhaust lobe with .490" lift with 1.73 ratio rockers. XR7 Dave and I have both used this cam in the past with very good results. It keep the torque fat down low and will pull 5000-5200 peak HP with the right mods.
