you dont have to change the cams. what size charger are you going with. The 3.4 with the crusher intake is massive power but suffers a little on the bottom end. you can get a easy 700hp from the 3.4. I would change the fuel pumps and injectors and rails before i bought the cams. if you go with cams remember you will loose bottom end and get more top end.

I agree. Putting in new cams seems like alot of work and money for the return. If it is a daily driver, you want that low end power. A whipple should give you all the power you need for a daily driver. If you are not satisfied, up the boost or add some nitrous. I'm about to retune for 21# of boost. Cold weather is a great time to dyno.
