Buy a Bluepoint Scanner for $99. and pull some codes. They will not give you a direct answer but, will tell you what systems are being affected.

You may have to reprogr4am or reset your engine computer system to reset for the new camshaft. Is this an after market cam or factory replacement. The aftermarket may not have the reader strip on it for the computer and the computer is flooding the system with fuel due to bad readings of the new cam.
