I am still running a stock cam in my truck, yes bone stock. I was talking to Ryan at Hamilton Cams today about a customers truck, when the conversation about the new 181/210 cam came up. Ryan said that I will notice a huge gain blah, blah, blah. I offered to test one for him with dyno results and we made a deal. Today he shipped out a cam & the new 110# springs my way. I'm gonna try to get on a dyno soon to get my numbers with a bone stock cam. I will be changing absolutely nothing but the cam and springs before returning to the same dyno. What tests would you guys like to see so that I can start collecting data? Ofcourse I'll be towing my 18k# trailer on the same course for one test. :thumbsup:

I told him straight up, I won't sugarcoat this test. I am only interested in real data. My truck made over 500hp at 4k+ rpm. I want to see what it does with a cam. It is something I've always wondered. I'll be running my truck to 4300+ rpm for a true test.

Too bad I couldn't work out a deal like that. I live 45 minutes away!

I'm not sure on your 2nd gens but I just put this cam in my 03 over the christmas break. It is sweet almost all of my turbo lag is gone, it is like a whole different truck. I've never been on the dyno but the difference is night and day. you will love this cam.

hey Jamie thats awesome! i am interested in hearing how you like it and im sure good data will come from your tests. im running a colt regrind and its a great improvement from stock i really like the way it runs. i would be curious to see what your egts are doing 75mph maintaining speed and how much boost...with my setup going down the highway at 75 it maintains 11psi of boost and 700*...stock it was around 3-4psi and 800-850*. i know you have a lot more turbo than i do but it should still be interesting to see the stock cam vs the Hamilton.

This will be interesting indeed!!! Would be nice to see general numbers, opinions and real world tests for the new cam. Perhaps I'll have to purchase one of these some day, might help my twins out...hmm....

Subscribed. I have been debating on getting a cam, just not sure if there worth the cost. Dyno #'s, spool time, boost, egt's.
