I never dynoed it after the cam was in. Thanks to the NOS explosion. (which was WAY cool by the way) But you definitely heard and felt a difference. It was a nasty cam. Check to see if the F has any piston to valve clearance problems. I dont think it does but im not 100% sure. Good luck with whichever you chose Doug.

the e-cam is a mean *** cam, but if your going to use it on a motor w/ stock heads and nos, i would recomend the f-cam. also, i'm pretty sure that lloyd's right on the piston to valve clearance.



good luck with all that

new springs r a must when u put in a new cam; but do i really need to put in new lifters? (on a '90 5.0 with 190,000 original miles, but less than 5k miles after engine rebuild)
