I'be got a 1004. They are ground on a 112 LSA, whereas the 1004-14 has a 114LSA. All this means is a slightly better idle, and a little less power.

All the cams listed should be fine on the stock computer.

The wade cams will set you back about $200-$250 all up including postage, shims, lifter repair kit etc.

The crow I think will be around $400.

The JMM will set you back around $750 at least.

Another option is ALTED cams, around $300 I think, or CMS cams (not sure about the price).

For midrange power, good idle and economy I think the ALTED cam would be the go.

the wade cams seem really cheap...are they any good?

Yeah their alright, the ones listed are pretty mild. They are regrinds done by a camshaft company.

If you look at the other places, JMM & ALTED for example.... they are Inline 6 specialists.

I would presume you have a set of extractors and a sports exhaust?
Then the cam.

I would go chip first before cam. Why? Because A monster cam needs a chip.
