Performance Camshafts

Making sure your valves open and close at the right time, for the right amount of time is essential for your 2006 Dodge Ram 1500. A performance camshaft will make sure this happens, and also let you get the most out of your engine modifications. Performance camshafts will have longer duration in which the valves are open which will increase your higher RPM power. Not only will they help your higher RPM power, but will help produce less vacuum at low RPM by having increased overlap. There are many specs to keep in mind when looking into camshafts. Depending on your vehicle and what your using your vehicle for, the type of cam needed can vary. The type of power and ride your looking for will also be a factor to have in mind. We have something for the daily that’s looking for a little more fun, the track cars, and for those who heavy duty tow. Sport Compact Warehouse is your premier source for performance camshafts so you will find a large selection in our catalog. Reach out to one of our experienced representatives today if you have any questions and we will help you make a more informative decision.

Even if you’ve improved your engine’s breathing capability with an intake, cylinder heads, headers, and performance exhaust system, you still won’t be getting the full benefit of these mods if the valves don’t open and close at the right time, or don’t open long enough or far enough to allow the optimal quantity of gases to flow. The camshaft controls valve operation, and few other components have as much impact on engine performance.

Camshafts are designed for the vehicle’s factory configuration, and if you’ve modified your 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 and/or have specific performance goals, your engine can produce much more power with an aftermarket performance camshaft. From increased mileage to towing, better street performance and a “lumpy” idle, to all out racing, we have the right grind for every application including hydraulic and solid, flat tappet and roller lifters.

Along with the mods listed above, compression ratio, transmission type, differential gearing, and vehicle weight must be factored in when choosing a cam. Specs will vary, but in general performance camshafts have higher lift to open the valves further, increasing airflow and power. Performance camshafts also typically have longer duration – the valves are open longer, which increases high RPM power. Longer duration is typically accompanied by increased overlap (when both intake and exhaust valves are open), which can enhance cylinder filling at high RPM, but can also result in less vacuum for power accessories at low RPM.
