I want to be able to use e series cams and have a Hybrid EL fairmont. What do I need to change to be able to use it? Is it just a matter of bolting on a normal EL head and rocker gear or will I need to buy some other stuff aswell?

I can pick up a mild wade cam for $100 anyway so I will just use that if I go down that route I think.

you need to change the rocker rack over to an EF unit. (or a pre-hybrid EL rack), that way you can run normal E series cams.

I am pretty sure that the EF and EL rocker gear was the same. The hybrid rocker gear had different ratios.
