looking at getting a bigger cam when i freshin up my motor,not sure whats in it now but lumps abit at idle and is good to 5500rpm in power before it tappers off.Dont know what chip is in it but revlimter is around 6200-6300 somewhere as it off the stock tacho on the dash.

The cam im looking at is- dur@50 276in 276ex
lift 693in 693ex
lope sep 108

This cam is probly way over the top for what i want but would sound great :twisted:

Any thoughts on this would be great

I've just been going through the same process and we had this discussion (ford-v8-f2/5l-cam-s-t75871.html) regarding it. have a read through, I would imagine most of the cams suggested in there would be suitable for you too.

The e303 cam would be a good choice depending on what your after though. Are you still running stock intake and heads? Will make a fair improvement if you have your standard E7 heads ported, or get some GT40p heads as they flow better than the e7 heads and get an explorer manifold (unless you have them on already)

standard intake,E7 heads,55mm maf,cam & chip,pacemakers,3'' exhaust,k&n,huge cold air intake, 5 spd..230rwhp.

I've got a au maf on it now,buying explorer manifold this week and im looking for gt40p heads or buying alloys and maybe a 50 shot of nos for burnout comps.When i pull the motor will check the numbers on the cam that is in it now

Sounds like you've got it all sorted :mrgreen: . The 50 shot will defiantely come in handy when you need it :twisted:

The GT40p heads and explorer should give you a bit more of an increase seeing as you already have a cam. The e7's are pretty restrictive so the GT40p's will give you more flow

There's no "probably" about it....it would be completely useless in your engine!
