Ok LR, I've got an 02 HD with a 2.3kb and supporting mods and I put down 463/510 on 93 with a stock bottom end. I'm currently deployed so I'm parts shopping and have been considering going with a set of cams. would it be worth it or should i just save and wait until i have a built bottom end before going that route? for those of you that have already done this, how was driveability and power increase depending on your specs. Thanks in advance.

Pull the engine one time and do it all at once

The rods are only good for 400-450rwhp, the slightest bit of detonation at that power level and snap. Vented block mod.

Its not worth pushing.

That's what I was thinking. I'm probably already pushing my luck with the current numbers.

Any cams worth having also require springs.

Built bottom end will get you places.

Go with a built bottom end. I would do ported heads before a cam swap.. I love the way cams sound and they make great power. You will need a stall to run the cams. You will have slight drivability issues running cams.. Some disagree with the drivability issue, it is all in the person.. I don't care what anyone says about a stall, you WILL have to run one. If you don't run a stall drivability will be compromised and you will not benefit as much from the cams. If money is a issue, you will have a better set-up with a strong bottom end and good flowing heads.. Honestly, with your current set-up your truck would be faster with a stall instead of cams..
