Either I misread the title or this went from E cam to X cam. I wouldn't hit a hog in the azz with either

i'd rather pay for a quality camshaft then put a letter cam in my car... even if you paid me to take it.


i'd just sell it and buy a real cam

if you dont have the money to put quality components in your car, you shouldnt be wasting the money putting ANYTHING in it.

somebody needs to get their priorities straight

I agree you cant beat free, but personally i woulda flipped it and bought something else. I dont mind people running letter cams, I just hate to hear oh I was expecting this, this, and this..., and they dont realize they are using components that are 20+ yrs old. I think the F cam sounds nice, it just doesnt perform as well, as it counter parts.

unless you got the matching valve springs, locks and retainers with the f-cam, the deal is not completely free

And all the gaskets and new chain. The wrong cam isnt a bargain even when it's free

I've done a x-cam swap in a buddys stock 5.0 motor, runs fine. I upgraded the springs with the trickflow spring kit they offer for the stock e7 heads...
