I would suggest call Greg at Phoenix for a converter, or perhaps hit up Shaun (86Merc) or Britt (Nutty Professor).

For a cam, maybe Alvin for one of his grinds, if he has one in stock, since you are in a rush.

Just a suggestion.

Keep in mind, a cam will require a tune afterwards.

Yea I have hpntunner software that I do myself
And thanks what you think about a circle d
Never heard anything bad about a Circle-D.

I have a PTB3200 in mine, and it hits quite hard. But, it does affect city mileage, and I can definitely tell there's a converter in there.

But, you have to replace the springs and probably the pushrods, with the Attitude, and you really should have headers too.

Not saying it's a bad idea, but way more than I would want for a DD. Perhaps a Stealth or Rob style, IMO.

It's a lot bigger than stock. It depends on what you want to do with the truck, really.

IMO, it's too much duration, a tad tight on the LSA.

Again, it's only my opinion, but camshafts are the one area I wouldn't compromise to save a few dollars, get the exact one you think you need, as the labor involved just isn't worth the $100-$200 savings.

Again, just my opinion.

This cam will definitely be noticeable, and require a decent amount of tuning, and really benefit from headers.

Dont buy a used cam just to save $.

That cam isn't right for a tbss and I dont think you will be pleased with results. If you were to run a 232/236 cam I would want it on a tighter lsa then a 114.

I have a #PTGM300/245 Phoenix 3600 converter for sale that I have currently installed in my truck. This converter has no more than 1000 miles since it was installed 6 months ago. It has a heavy duty damper and clutch (single disc so don’t lock it up at wide open throttle), furnace brazed cover, tig reinforced fins and turbine, hardened turbine splines and anti balloon hub. I obviously don't have any pics of my actual converter but here is the link to their website

http://www.phoenixtrans.com/html/converters.html

$390 shipped

It will come off if I get my new one soon or if someone obviously buys it

I think th the same cam I have and it's all sound! No power at at. If you put this cam in our motor and Stuck it in a 90's camaro it would run low 11's.... It's nota good cam corpus heavy trucks

Well I trust PCM for less and the numbers they put down maybe it won't put down as much for built motor maybe it's for ported heads or stock heads
