new here, but been racing for many years, sort of retired from it, bought myself a toy, 2011 R/T Challenger Redline, Tremec 6 speed.

Mods so far, lowered car 2 inches, mopar 10 black wheels, Hurts shifter, Mopar cai, many cosmetic changes from changing spoiler to flat black to black fuel filler, the Mopar cat back ordered but not yet installed, this car needs to be streetable, have a 65 twin screws Dart in the garage that isnt....
looking for opinions on changing camshaft, my thought install cam from 6.4L to 5.7L, both MDS, everything except springs are the same
pros & cons?????

mds is a fuel saving system on most new hemi's, shuts down cylinders in eco mode in order to improve fuel economy and emissions, at cruise speed under little or no load the engine becomes a 6 cylinder than possibly a 4 cylinder, most people dont know they have it

looking for pros and cons on using the 6.4L cam in the 5.7L hemi, hoping someone has already done this mod

everything is almost indentical, have compared the specs from both cams, the 6.4 is a much more agressive cam.....

... additionally you will need a custom tune for a new cam and 5.7 heads from what I have read. Tuning isn't currently available for 2011 R/Ts.

Maybe it's just me, but the thought of putting a cam from a 6.1 or 6.7 into the 5.7 sounds like crazy talk. Why not look at aftermarket cams made for the 5.7 and VVT?

6.1 cam shouldn't work at all, it's not a VVT cam.

Not much Available for 11 models trying to improve basic performance
Do not want forced inductions or nos
So far cai and waiting on vendor to ship my new cat back, all Mopar
Hopefully tuner will be available shortly
5.7 6.1 and 6.4 are basically same engine
Thanks

Just for the record it's really a VCT camshaft not a VVT (valvetrain). An Arrington regrind or new billet 5.7 VCT cam will give some good gains from what I've seen on a couple of threads. The trick to the issue is also the cam phasers need to be modified to reduce the degree of adv and retard on the cam to increase piston to valve clearance, then a hefty cam can go in. Ford and Chevy have them already from Comp Cams.

FYI,
