    Truck torque curve?

    I have a 99 vette LS1 in a Jeep rockcrawler with 40 inch tires. I'd prefer to have a truck 5.3 or 6.0 if they're low end torque curve is better. Anyone have specs or graphs on vette vs truck? So would swapping the intakes change the vette motor to a truck motor? I hope someone knows about this.

    A cam would be an easier swap-i'm not knowledgable on the cam but if you called any # of cam makers they would give you a custom grind that would be much better than any stock motors.

    The intake swap isn't difficult from my point of view Fuel reg on the rail, so add the return line and the intakes go for cheap compared to a cam. Aren't these cams going around 5 bills?

    keep the intake you have on it .take a look at this cam from comp 54-408 -11.on the free pc dyno this cam makes good torque in the lower rpm range.
