Default 5.9 Cam

Would I see a Significant increase in pulling power by adding a mild RV cam and doing the Kegger mod to my 5.9
Thanks Ed

Some, but the kegger mod is aimed at primarily improving upper rpm power....not where the RV cam lives. The typical RV cam is basically in the same category as the 5.2 Magnum cam. Same valve springs as the 5.9 cam. Get a used one for cheap and save $300.

All years are .432" gross lift. If there's any difference in duration figures, they are miniscule.
