OK, new here and hoping to get some info on cam selection.
I am building a 1980 Mustang show car (Mustang Cobra) with my son and I am installing a 1989 5.0 motor (carbed, NOT fuel injected), dual plane manifold, 3.73 gears, T-5 tranny, and the heads are gt40 heads with 1.7 roller rockers, and valve springs installed.
I bought the motor used and have disassembled it for tanking and heads to get cleaned. I am looking for a cam that will give a nice lopey idle and good power from lets say 2000-6000 rpm. This is NOT A RACE CAR!! This is a show car that I will drive around in and have some fun with. Looking for a nice sounding idle, nice power. Have looked on youtube at videos on the E cams and B cams. Not limited on cam selection. Want to install it once and thats it.
I know many here have installed cams in their cars and looking for what works,.
Would be nice to nail the throttle and chirp the tires in thrid gear!!!
Again, just a nice cam for fun. Comp, crane, ford racing...lunati, I don't care....just want that nice lopey idle and fun to drive.
