big cam(s) will help your high end, but hurt your drivability and low end. It is not a good modification for a daily driven vehicle. You will also need to modify your fuel and timing tables or it will not run correctly. Looks like you need to do some more research before you post this.

A mild cam can be a great thing for a daily driven vehicle. It's best to have other supporting mods first though

Contact the Cam Manufacture and ask them for there advice, they know their product better than anyone. Very few people on this site have cammed a 3.0.
