Lol, I hope someone beats me to it. For my next project I'm either going with an 07 Dakota 392 Hemi Transplant or an 08+ Dakota. I think an 08 with 224X cam and Whipple blower would be sick. I know the Kenne Bell blower wouldn't be any problem. The Whipple would take some custom machining to get the pullies to line up. Still, I need aother project truck, lol.

Of all the cams I tested, HO, 206, 224 and the 224X, the 206 and 224X landed me the best results.
Who sales custom cams for a 4.7 I've looked and googled but haven't come up with anything.

airram.com will occasionally have OEM HO cams in stock, but other than that no cams exist for us. What Blown is referring to, are different grinds. You can send a set of OEM HO cams to a place who will grind them to a different shape. Some place was working on a billet cam a while ago, got bought out, and the new company started working on them again supposedly. I don't recall the name of either company though.

it used to be called krc performance, was bought out by watson performance. the owner who was only 21 just passed away in a car crash a few weeks back. So the future of the company is up in the air.

The cheapest way to go is to buy a set of HO cams from Crane Cams and pay for a custom regrind.

Give them a call and see. Last set I called about they had the HO cores on the shelf. Good luck.

The trick is that all these grinds are based off the HO cams and not the factory NON HO cams. from what i've been told by a local cam grinding shop, they cant really do much with the NON HO cams.....

doh, that's what I meant. the OEM HO cams can be regound for sure, non-HOs not so much. edited and fixed

What kind of grind are you looking for? There are a couple forsale on other forums.. I think a 212 and another guy with like a 219 or something.
