What compression ratio? What heads, flow bench numbers? It's easy to point at a cam, but without the details, picking what cam will work is near on impossible.

Yeah I know man but I'm pretty sure I've read on the mustang forums there's a couple of cams that are pretty safe in most engine combos, it's not worth me taking the heads of and doing that plastersene check too much effort maybe ill just stay with the 2031

Compression test will not tell you very much at all, cranking compression is primarily controlled by the inlet valve closing... Which is dictated by cam choice.

Without knowing what you really have in your engine, it is a bit tough to suggest a cam, but the Comp Cams XE276HR-12 works pretty well in a 347 with 1.7 rockers. Especially a manual.
