Hi everyone, just a question on camshaft selection.Ive got a EB fairmont auto running a 94TD tickford head and cam, pacemaker 4480 headers and 2.5" redback exhaust. As it is it goes ok.Pulls well at 3000rpm+.Was just after a little bit more from 2000 to 4000rpm. Looking at wade 1673 or similar . Any Ideas? I dont mind a lopey idle [prefer it] :wink: Anyhow any advice greatly appreciated

The 1673 wade cam is not suited for a auto according to wade cams.
The 1636 wade cam is suited for your application.
If your interested i have a camtech cam with new lifters for sale. It is a stage 1 camtech cam which is simular to a 1636 wade cam.
