Default Good performance cams for the hardbody

I was wanting to get some good suggestions on a good performance cam for a good price. I'm looking to go about as big as I can without having to do any changes to anything. I need of some good advice.

You are going to have to go custom re-grind since performance cams are unicorns and I don't trust O&J. Most likely you are going to have to do other mods to take advantage of any big cam install.

What other upgrades do you think would be necessary. It really doesn't have much engine wise done to it. It has e3 plus Flowmaster and gutted converter and have removed the cover over the air filter. Want one but had to make myself spend k&n prices but I'm going to anyway just havent yet.egr block and emissions removed.

put the air filter cover back on, all you are doing with it removed is sucking in hot under hood air, probably makes it run worse

It's a mountain of work just to get a small increase in power (IMHO.) It's a 1/4 ton truck after all, not a sports car. Go for reliability, not extra power.
