my suggestion. go with comp cams XFI cams. they work very well with stock computers and still give significant HP and TQ increases. if you decide to go to something more radical then yes you will need computer tuning to make your vehicle performs the best with a cam upgrade.

the 6.1 cam is an high end cam, do you want a torque monster??? if so go with a comp 260 cam.

with any cam change i'd recommend at least 6.1l valve springs.

I have a comp 268 cam in my ram, with other things etc....

is your truck 2wd or 4wd??? quad cab or regular cab?

The XFI 260 netted 20 additional ft pounds of torque in lower rpm ranges with a peak of 31 additional hp. The XE 268 camshaft added 14 ft lbs of torque at low rpm and 47 additional peak horsepower. The amazing Comp Cams XFI 273 camshaft yielded it's most significant horsepower increases over 4500 rpm generating 61 more horsepower than the stock Hemi 5.7-liter engine.
