Fellas, happy Friday.
Long time lurker first time poster...
Am looking at a 2009 WM Statesman 6.0L (auto) tomorrow, 150k on the clock, 2 grandpa owners log books, etc. Essentially, I want this thing to be a neck breaker from a stand still. Lots of torque & acceleration but keep it stock as a rock exterior wise.
Ill be doing OTR, full exhaust (varex mufflers because PC 2019), cam, diff & tune.
Ive got about 8g as a budget for go fast bits and would love to hear any advice on different brands/combinations.
*Id prefer the cam not to be excessively lumpy, it will be a daily.
Cheers fellas:D:D:D

Considering you don't want a "Lumpy" cam because it'll be a daily driver, save a few more g's and buy a supercharger for it
Ain't nothing like the feeling of being blown :D

I'd recommend the VCM 5SC cam for a good jump in power. From the research i've done on it, it provides torque all throughout the rev range and is perfectly matched for a Supercharger. So i'd be putting that cam in it and if you're still hungry for more then get a blower.

Faark a supercharger would be insane!

I looked at this cam & was pretty keen, was also considering the 480 or 360?
I assuming if you slap a blower on youd still be wanting to upgrade the cam, lifters etc? Might be something to consider in the future..

You don’t have to upgrade your cam for a supercharged setup but you’ll make more power if u do

Sorry guys im not very computer savvy....So i bagged myself a grandpa spec stato, very tight, hasnt been abused, all the log books and jazz. Compared to my old (2011 ssv) this thing feels like a jumping castle, very relaxed & lethargic but forgiving. Box is pretty tight (insert innuendoes here), diff feels pretty sloppy but will be throwing in a 3:45 pretty soon, have ordered some headers 1 7/8 to 3in and will be getting a 3in xforce cat back and vcm otr to go with....cam choice but...
