ok, so i was looking at craigslist, and i found a couple people around here that have b,e, and f cams used for around $100. i was wondering if it would be worth it to buy one of these, or should i just spend more money and get the TFS stage 1 cam??? its going with gt40p heads.

I have this cam if its .499 .510 stage one?
and I have gt40p heads
they advertise this cam as a nitrous/supercharger cam.I wasnt that impressed with the cam its okay but then I added nitrous and ohhh boy I think this cam is better with some kind of nitro or blower app...
I would go with one of thosee,b,f, cams if your not planning on adding a power adder.
theres a webpage about these heads and that dude sayeth the heads are better with a strait up cam .488 .488 etc... just my 2 cents........I ran 14.20 no juice if that helps yah
edelbrock 5.0 intake
75 mm throttle body
and the tfs stage one cam
ohh i ran 13.40 with a 100 shot felt like i was ice skating im sure ill put it in the 12's with some sticky tires
Id like to know a few things bout tfs cam myself it seems decent but i dont know why everyone bad mouths all the abc cams, e and b i can understand but f cam with awesome idle sound 226 duration and 512 lift it actually has higher specs than a tfs cam and has more mid and top end power which is what the 5.0 lacks.
No Replacement for Positive Displacement.
Stage 1 isa small cam, so a f-cam my be better for you. Oh and by the way i have a Brand New In The Box F-cam i bought from summit a few months ago and never used or installed, My price is cheaper than summit. I live in ga, pm me if interested.
Any aftermarket cam you select "requires" that you also upgrade the valve springs/retainers....otherwise you will not be getting whatever potential the cam has......
