i see an exhaust system, and some audio gear. Your car is near stock, do you plan on modding it any further as that can have a bearing on what cam/s to use

But in all honesty, your post shows you havnt researched a single thing. This forum has 2 active sponsors who do cams for your car, and have many pages in their forums, also the search function will give you 50 pages of info to read about.

A google search will help you understand cam basics as well. Example: http://www.cranecams.com/?show=faq&id=2

If your still stuck after that, then i will happily give you more info :)

Have a look at stockstandards thread at the top of these forum regarding frequently asked questions.

If you had bothered to read that, you would know that asking "what cam is good for me" is useless.

For a stock auto falcon with exhaust mods..... well in my opinion anyway

auto with 3.45 diff ratio or lower = 1636

auto with 3.73 diff ratio or higher = 1673
