Better, in terms of more power, yes.

All cams are designed to produce different results. Some idle like a standard cam. Some start working real low in the rev range and then ease off mid range. Others don't start to work until 2800 / 3000 but are much stronger at the top end.

My point is, a "hot" cam is no better than a "mild" street cam if you're looking for something that will give good fuel economy when you drive to church on Sunday or whatever. On the other hand, if you want something for high performance then obviously, a mild cam is not for you.

Yes, l know, I'm rambling on, stating the bleeding obvious. You'd be surprised however how many people ring me at Wades and make reference, in particular, to a high performance cam being "better" than something milder. If it doesn't meet your requirements, it isn't better because it doesn't suit your needs.

Therein ends the lesson for tonight. Time for sleep.

Cheers

In what order would these cams go in terms of performance/size etc?
1004, 997b, 1636, 1604, 1521a

And for what ones are a Vernier gear/valve springs/ecu needed?

which ones can be reground from a stock ef cam?

cheers

from my understanding:

from mild to wild
1604, 1004, 1636, 977b, 1521a

vernier gear would be recommended for all, how ever not *needed*

1521a deffinately needs springs, not sure on 977b, but i'm be inclined to say it does.

I'm in the same position as Stockstandard.

I've used a 1004/110 regrind and a 1521a/114 billet. Not one hint of chain back lash and grinding has been spot on both times. Like Mark, I'm also on the outlook for a bigger cam, something that doesnt taper off like the 1521a does. Any 235deg 110LSA 550thou camshafts on the way from wade????

On another note I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who values propper use of the Queens English. (I'm sure people remember my "SMS" thread)


We've got a profile with 234deg 110LSA 562thou specs.....a bit more lift than you mentioned.


Sorry....I made a mistake with the figures.

Should be 231 @ 0.050". 110LSA 0.560" valve lift.

This is pretty much spot on what I am looking for. Do you have any more info on the cam. What is the piston to valve clearence like? Has one been in a car yet? What vacuum does it get at idle?

hahahaha this thread was hilarious.

The whole point with these cams is that there is no way to compare unless you do buy all of them and try them one by one.

I won't say which cam I have.. but I will say that those that were there for the install day in WA saw the perfect idle.. and the performance increase was well.. great. I am very happy with my purchase and that's all that matters.

What I'm trying to say is.. everyone has to make up their own minds without being able to test the different cams and hopefully you'll be happy with what you buy. Whether you're happy or not, post up the results here.

Without testimonials it's kind of hard to make up your mind on a product that you have no way of testing.

This has been one of the most entertaining threads I have discovered so far on Fordmods.

Chris @Wade: What is the plural of "POOF"?

I suspect this might be a trick question?

I know.....Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

Seriously, my apologies if I've offended anyone. It was my attempt to "lighten up" a thread that was becoming a bit nasty.

hahaha yeah it was... but it was entertaining.
If no one expressed their opinion.. we'd have no forum!
