aftermarket cam??

Is anyone here running a radical aftermarket cam on their 6.6 rig. I'm interested to know how that worked out. I am planning a major overhaul project this spring so I am toying around with different ideas. I'd like some input on cams big duration and lift.

The plans are to make it a dedicated 1/4 mile racer, street manners are not a concern. It's rather hard to find head and cam cominations and engine internals for diesels. Websites are vague and only list bolt ons which I have no interest in as yet. I want to to build the engine while it is out and hopefully not have to do it for quite some time. So I need to do it right the first time.

I like big cams they make great power and bring big smiles.:evil: I would prefer to do a head and cam package that way the two compliment each other.
If I could work the rotating assembly so I could cut down on the torque and up the hp would be great too. There is only so much you can detune torque without compromising performance.

By the way thanks for your reply.

The new Extreme cam from TTS is getting some good reviews.
