What will a COMP cam for my 1996 300 I6 do?

I'm wanting my truck to have a lower growl to it and I found someone who did a bunch of stuff to their truck and I'm not quite sure what all it would do to my truck! Here is the video:

Thanks! This is my first post.

Depends on what grind of cam you put in depends on the power and the idle it produces. The idle on the video sounds like the performance cam the growl is from the headers and the muffler.

i agree. a super 44 flowmaster muffler will make almost anything sound mean. they are also a bit loud for any length of driving for my taste.

Good advice to OP as after awhile exhaust sound can be wearing. So to build on that, how and where the downstream exit from the muffler(s) is can have quite an impact on less/more sound AND who will be hearing it. The further back, all the way to the back, out the side of the vehicle before or after the tires, and in any case, pointed down or straight out will have quite a difference in who hears it and how much. To get the most sound in your vehicle will be to dump under the vehicle and behind the passenger compartment (WA state law, FWIW) and not out the side. The least will be to exit at the very back, straight back and angled down a bit. Now you get to decide what you like.

Also have to keep in mind if you are still injected, you have to keep the computer happy... If the readings go outside the parameters it is set for, it gets pretty grumpy...

How would I keep the computer happy? Or how would I adjust it? Could I take it to an auto shop or what?

You can't get too much cam or the vacuum and O2 sensor readings get out of whack, so you have to keep it to a grind that doesn't go too far. Some aftermarket programmers can help, but not sure if they go back that far.

like the others have said.. if you go too far with the grind youll have to get it professionally tuned... canned tunes can help with slight to moderate.. but an aggressive cam (sometimes moderate ones if they lean to close to an aggressive stance) would need the full dyno custom tuning...

Comp Cams will walk you through and give you the maximum recommended camshaft for your application without overstepping the computer. Don't worry - just let them guide you.
