The Hamilton Cams 07-C-178/208S Steel Camshaft that offers greater power in the lower RPM range for your 1989-2018 Dodge Ram 5.9/6.7L Cummins. This steel camshaft is an excellent upgrade to increase all-around efficiency and will work with any size turbo. If your truck is frequently driven at high altitudes, or if you spend a lot of time driving at lower RPMs, this camshaft will greatly improve drivability.
Although this camshaft is considered a drop-in replacement, it is important to check clearances. The 1989-1998 Cummins 12v will need no more than .025″ piston protrusion and at least .055″ valve face depth with a standard head gasket. In 1998.5 – 2002 Cummins applications, you will need no more than .025″ piston protrusion and a minimum of .038″ valve face depth with a standard gasket. The 2003 to 2018 Cummins engines will need .018″piston protrusion and a minimum of .038″ valve face depth with a standard gasket. If you do not meet the requirements for the piston to valve clearance, you can still run an oversize head gasket or cut valve reliefs.
