No, you don't have to switch to a roller cam, flat tappet is fine. Pending your budget, swapping cam styles is expensive. Ask me how I know

scroll to the bottom, it goes in place of your carb.This seems easy because it will self tune to your engine, just give your car a EFI fuel pump setup in the tank from a 5.0 donor, or get a 5.0 tank and wiring etc for efi



Dont know the cost, or you can ****** the whole setup from a 5.0 crow vic, van,truck or mustang etc of the years 88-93, then get 36 or 42lb injectors and dyno tune.
