So If I Install New Cams...

What else would I need to utilize them properly?

I have true duals, Roiland Sands air cleaner, a fuel processor that honestly right now I forget the brand. But are there other things I need to consider to get the most out of the new cams, or just install and go?

Thanks,
Wade

A good dyno tune. Make sure your dyno person is proficient in using the tuner you have.

Do you have an idea of which cams you'd think you would like?

Not totally sure, something that gives me more gusto when passing on the highway.

Definitely get a tune so that you get the most out of it.

Fuel Management System, sorry, kinda figured "processor" was synonymous. This is what I currently have, but I don't think it will adjust for the addition of cams, so I'd need a race tuner or the like I'm guessing.

Since your doing cams you'll definitely need some sort of tuner to get the full potential of the work you're having done. If you're having a shop do the work then I would get what they're accustomed to working with. I have the Direct Link on my Dyna and will be using it again for Ultra when I get my work done this spring. It's not a piggyback tuner which is what I like about it.

Definitely go with a flash tuner not a piggy back unit

Along with the tuner and dyno tune already mentioned you'll need adjustable pushrods and new lifters wouldn't hurt (you may have already figured that in but it wasn't mentioned).
