    i wouldn't imagine you needing a tune immediately after getting a cam that small. the stock ones for 01-02 are about 196/209 @.050. i'm not trying to be a dick, just inquiring, but why change the cam if it's going to be that slight of a change?...even with the increased lift, it's probably not going to net very much gain.

    No its not too big of a cam however it will make a small gain plus brand new with
    matching springs for 50 bucks makes it worth while that and i don't want to make the a dragster or anything just a little more umph

    218/218...527/527

    Had 218/218...527/527 installed + the tune for $650. Pulls much harder starting at 3500-5500. Idles with a little lope and exactly what I wanted for an old man cam (63 yrs). Tuner said LT's would put it around 360 RWHP.No, it is not 224/224 but I am happy and done with mods unless I spray in the future. Readings were at 87F and 53% Humidity.

    If going through all of the trouble of installing and the added expenses like seal, fluids, etc. why not just put in atleast close to something you want, so if you do it again you are actually behind. I woulodn't go any smaller than a 224 myself but jsut my oinion. Glad you like your gain though
