Re: Cam upgrade 3.8 ???
yes you'll need a retune and for that you need a pcm form a 97, 96's aren't tuneable. don't forget you'll need headers, complete exhaust, tons of gaskets, new/performance timing chain and damper (single or double depends on cam) , heavier valve springs (depends on cam which ones), new valve locks and retainers, reusable rocker bolts, cam and crank bolt there tty new pushrods and lifters are also recommend and I sure they my be something I missed.
