I was wondering if the 5.7 would take the 392 cam. I haven't ever bothered to try and do a cam, so I'm pretty new to this. Question is, if it will take the 392 cam, what else would be required? Rockers, rollers, anything else?

The lifters in 08 5.7 are MDS lifters. You can put in several different cams. With the changes for the 09's..variable cam timing etc, I do not know. I think without doing heads, intake, headers, a cam is a waste of $$$.

I dont even think you could use a conventional cam in the VCT block. Ive asked multiple times how sophisticated the VCT system is but I can not find an answer, nor any information on the subject.

The VCT motors might not take to aftermarket cams?
I dont think thats the case, because there are hondas that have variable timing and there are plenty of options for those guys. I think we will probably have to start from a clean slate on the 5.7 now.

I dont know about the VVT 5.7's, but the earlier 5.7's will take the cam. You would need a set of machined heads, possibly even the 6.1 stage II heads and intake from PPP.
