Hello everyone,

New to the forum. I got some mods im doing to my truck and since this is a forum i try to regularly keep up with, figured i would go ahead and join and ask some questions since i have found little in depth topics on this subject.


So. Got a 2002 2500HD 6.0 crew cab, 2x4.

Already have the engine and tranny both out.

Heres what im doing. Comp cam mutha thumper cam, timing set, headers, air intake, throttle body spacer, new rings, surface the heads, maybe port n polish. Exhaust, and a programmer.

Doing all the work myself. Was wondering if anyone else has done this similar combo? If so what brands/results?

Should my stock converter be able to hold that cam. It says its best with a 2500+ stall. Whats the stall speed on these stock hd trannys?


Should i go ahead and invest in a set of push rods/rockers/springs? Ive been told as long as i dont go with a HUGE cam the stock ones should be fine. The engine only has 130,000 on it, so the internals are in great shape.


I do haul/tow with this truck. Farm equipment tractors bobcats etc. So i still want towing power.


Any advice at all will be very much appreciated. I know my way around a SB chevy pretty good. But theres ALOT of ppl out here that know alot more. So anything helps.


Thanks guys
