ok so I put a cam in an older "LA" engine (piece of cake). So if I get a "274" cam, which is most popular when I search for cams. So I install it just like my factory cam is installed or do I need to "limit" it? Also if I throw this cam in my car in my garage, I have heard it will not run without a tune. It is a '15 so I presume I need to get the unlocked PCM and a tuner and a "canned" tune for my application before I change cams. Is this correct? I know on the older engines you lined up the timing marks and stuck in an "offset key" to advance the cam 4 degrees and you were done. (well my Cloyes set was 4 advanced, straight up or 4 retarded). This whole VVT and MDS crap makes me feel 10 degrees retarded.
If that's the case, you should have some top end power but I suggest a high stall Torque Converter!
