You're not going to find a good write up on a VVT cam install. No one is doing them because they are very difficult to tune. Like Hydrex said, I would talk to a tuner first and go from there.

They don't.

The new motors have VVT and no one has been able to tune them worth anything. As of right now I wouldn't waste your money on a cam for a VVT ram.

If you're willing to drive to Long Island a buddy of mine might be able to do the install for you. And he's got damn good prices too. I'll ask this weekend when I pick my truck up from him.

You're not going to get headers for less than $1000 most likely. I would go for a tuner and a tune. Or you could go with a torque converter and do the install yourself and that would be under $600.
