The best bet for a cam would be to contact the a few companies that make cams (Edelbrock, Crane, etc.) tell them your truck specs, future performance mods, and expectations. Most aftermarket cam manufacturers do custom grinds now a days more than off the shelf generic grinds because of the many different parts people are using on their vehicles like tuners, blowers, turbos, custom tuned injectors.
A custom grind will cost slightly more but the return is a better running engine that many times will out perform the original cam when it comes time to step up to the Emissions testing site. Emissions testing will be getting stricter than it is in the coming years and anything that degrades the emissions of a vehicle will be scrutinized closely.
