What cam to buy?

Im semi new to the cam world, Im upgrading my stock cam on my 04 1500 5.7 but honestly don't know what route to go. I have seen good reviews from a lot of people about them all. Im looking for as much hp gains as I can withstand. My overall plan is to hit 600+ hp in the long run. Im going to get LT herders within the next week and hopefully order a cam tonight or tomorrow. Any advice on what brand and model cam would work best would be greatly appreciated. I will eventually have twin turbos or a pro charger in the long run. I want an aggressive cam that will help gain`a good amount of hp but also be reliable (if thats possible)

To reach your goals you will need a forged engine and a lot of support mods. In the mean time with your current engine it's a opportunity to learn about your truck and develop strategies to over come it's weaknesses. Some mods will support your end goals and some will not and have to be changed later at higher power levels or simply experimented with. Get a Diablo tuner for your future mods and cmr tuning. As for a cam get something that doesn't need a lot of tuning and is compatible with your current TC, gear ratio, suspension and the transmission. When you do break the engine then build a forged motor and start shopping for the blower.
