I don't know, but I'd be willing to pay for a cam that makes my little 3.0 sound like that. I think I remember the video that you're talking about though. It was a Sonic Blue ranger with a supercharged 3.0 and a tuner that pulled the idle rpm down. And that guy is a member but I can't remember who it was.

This guy's got "SUPERCHARGED" on his dome hood. I might have seen it somewhere else and just associated it with R-F for some reason. Any idea as to what cam it is and where I can get one?

I might be willing to bet there was another car in the background that was making the sound.

no... its really his truck. its not a morana stroker kit but he does have a cam in it that he's not giving details about, plus running headers straight into an exhaust with no cats i believe. its some guy on rps i think.

cool sounding 3.0

I'm not sure the aforementioned trucks are the same...the rims are different, and one has amber corner marker lights (which COULD be under clear lenses, but I'm not sure).

his postname is rangeredge02. yes he was a supercharged 3.0 w/ a cam to match it. but he switched it up to a wicked cam that i am guessing is in the high .5s. he runs a full header back exhaust 2.5" to 3" according to his sig.

P.S. My cams are .600 lift and it doesnt cam that harsh.

I have absolutely NO experience with internals or tuning, just wondering how much of a professional job that would be installing and then tuning a cam like that. I would like nothing more than to put in a performance cam and rockers and rollers, but I'm barely a weekend warrior and I don't really have any mechanic buddies to fall back on around here.

cam craft or whatever its called you can get a pre-ground cam for a little over $200 or have your own grind done. check the 3.0 beginners board for the sites and such.
