If you have a new model GM truck with the L83 engine, the odds of you needing more power are pretty likely. And don’t get us wrong, these engines perform exceptionally well in the new GM trucks and SUVs. But if you’re like us, more is usually better, especially when it comes to performance and horsepower. It doesn’t matter if you’re hauling a heavy load or drag racing your truck; more power is always welcome.
A camshaft is an easy and affordable way to add power to your GM truck. And Brian Tooley Racing (BTR) now offers several different cams for the L83 engines, from their mild Stage 1 to the ever-popular Stage 3 grind. These made in the USA camshafts provide significant power gains while maintaining OEM drivability.

While installing one of these new camshafts in the direct-injected powerplant will undoubtedly add some power, it’s also a great time to get rid of the GM’s dreaded Displacement On Demand (DOD) and Active Fuel Management (AFM) before it becomes a real problem. BTR has you covered there with its Gen V Truck DOD/AFM delete kit that includes everything you need to rid your L83 of these pesky options.
