Will probably regret asking but.
I'm looking for suggestions for a Complete cam kit for a 2004 4.3 v6 262 .something to get a bit more HP 30/40 would be plenty and with a good sound . . That will also work with stock trans and rear .
Question and concerns would be

What cam/kit would be ideal

Would it need to be tuned

And what other things would have to be done to truck to make it rude properly and be a reliable daily driver

Any suggestions would be appreciated
Thanks

Save up $400 and buy a wrecked v8.

Having done a cam in a 4.3, I can say that it wasn't worth the trouble or cost. I even went further and also bumped the compression a point and a half, K&N intake, and headers.

All of it was not worth it.

I should've boosted it and been done with it.

Forced induction.

Get something bigger than you need, so you can use it on the V8 you'll buy after you blow the V6 up.
