5.9 cam in a 5.2?

Is the cam just too big spec wise or will it not physically fit?

The 5.2 cam has more lift...

Physically, they are the same size.

No fear, no doubt, all in balls out

If every American cared enough to purchase one USA made garment per year the impact would be $9 billion. That is a lot of American jobs.

5.2 cam is a better cam than the 5.9 cam.

So you're saying it's an " upgrade" for the 5.9 guys to swap in a 5.2 cam?

Small upgrade, yes. It wouldn't really be worth the time and gaskets involved in a swap though

I agree with hauln. Just got yourself a set of 1:7 HS rockers.

318 cam is a cheap upgrade if you happen to have on the shelf doing nothing else. A 318 cam with 1.7 rockers will have roughly the same effect on a 5.9 as a Mopar R/T cam.
