Best Mod EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

I just put a hamilton cam in my 01. I can not say enough about it. It made my paint look fresher and the seats smell better. Girls smiled at me more. Oh yea, the truck runs soooo much smother now as well. The turbo is super loud through the exhaust. I don't think you would recognize the sound of the truck as a 24v now. It get almost instant spool, lower egts, better mileage, it revs to 3500 almost instantly. This will pay for itself in a month the way we drive the truck. I am definitely getting one one in my 05. That will be the first non trans mod I get in that truck.

The whole front of the truck comes off. Most of it is pretty easy. We changed the tappets. That was pretty hard even for my mechanic.

--- Update to the previous post...

Lets hear more

Exactly, the sound of the turbo out of the tailpipe is amazing. It spools so early that my truck sounds like an airplane. I can break the tires loose from a dead stop and I couldn't do that before with my automatic. The power comes on earlier and lasts longer.

181/210. I just called Hamilton and asked them to send me what they thought I needed. I tried PDE also but they are Canadian and wouldn't ship after 11am to the east coast. I bought American.

You will need to cut pistons. That is not a drop in cam. You dont want the killer spank.

I spoke to zach him self on the phone, we went over supporting mods, future mods, and intended use, he told me I would NOT need fly cut pistons with the 188/210.When I order it, I will go over it again to make sure.Sent from my mobile phone using tapatalk

We should all collectively do a write up on it. (Cam install) Mine went smooth. The tappets were time consuming. We could help one another. It is not vary hard. I have a dowl kit i could loan out. I dont have the cam tray i used a friends. Some people use a cut pcv tube, getting string and a cork is no problem. What do you guys think do you want to start a write up ?

Cajflynn, Do you have an exhaust brake? If so do you monitor backpressure? With my baby cam it his peak pressure about 500 rpms sooner, and I have yet to run it above 2500, not sure if it will stay below 65 psi?

If we all go in on a cam say the 181/210, I would be willing to donate my truck for pix!:pray:

If one gets donated to me, ill do a cam and p-pump write up. Sent from my mobile phone using tapatalk
