First thing I must ask, how will you be using the engine? Local street driving or racing? Also, will you have an automatic trans or stick shift?

One last thing, if you can save up a little extra cash, I would go with better heads like from AFR, it will be worth every penny you spend on them. They will create way more torque and are a great source of HP for the money.

Me currently, I am running GT40 heads ported/polished by G&S Performance Engines along with an E-303 cam. Not a good cam for local city driving, makes the truck stall out at times and feel bogged down when driving slow BUT if I floor it, the truck FKN moves like a bat out of hell, thats for sure!

If I pull my engine again, the cam is going though. There is no bottom end with that cam so I would look for something that performs more in the driving band that I am in.

Unfortunately I cant floor it at every green light! Great cam, not good for my application, local city driving.

Tony there is a differance between GT 40 & GT 40 P heads

even though I went with 'World Products' Windsor Senior Heads
around here the GT 40 P heads are the choice

I know there is a difference, but I would save up and just buy some really nice aftermarket heads if I were him.

10-4 Nine5, ask G&S about them P heads.

whitesleeper, as Nine5 said Cam choice depends on so many vairables
I have 3 Cams on the shelf that were changed out as soon as another one arrived till I settled on the above
your carburation/induction should be your last choice (unless we know proven results) as it has to jive with your cam to perform

for what a Cam does as opposed to its price, its well worth the $ to experiment
plus its easy
remove valve covers and mess with them spring things
remove grill & radiator, pump & dist
add gaskets
back on the road with lead foot

Default The cam

Hay nine5flareside ok i am running a auto with factory stahl specs -city driving very little mostly highway about 322.7 every other weekend . A lot of dumb shits to get around and once in a while the little PUNK in the little honda that thought he could get around me as far as the heads you are talking about that would be nice HOWEVER the GT 40 P heads seem to be a really good set mostly do to the plug location in mustangs with the p heads most could bump timing around 2-3 degrees and has a little more compression . The heads would be nice BUT i have to spread the wealth ........ S A S after engine . If you want to swap out your cam in the next 2-3 weeks i know a few people that would buy it . . When does that cam kick in ?? THANKS FOR THE INFO

Default A few cams on the shelf

I agree however im getting to old to to keep taking the valve covers off removing the springy things and so on .And i WILL NOT let a shop do it . This is why i am asking my fellow FTC members . most cams on carbs will not do the same on EFI that is a given . this is my first build for a TRUCk with M A F . I did a 351 w speed den and it worked out really freakn good .. 1990 ford F350 crew cab 2 wheel drive tp speed 143 c6 4-10 gears do the math on that i like to really twist a engine . I could go custom grind and then what if Hell stock may be best ....... could go with the mojo button instead ( would have could have should have ) thanks for the input some more info to take in . Thanks again Jsoko

I called the machine shop that does my work and asked them about heads & cam
answer was

AFR 165 heads were prefered over the GT 40 P
E 303 cam would work well on bottom & top end for auto trans, or a custom grind
B 303 for manual trans

E-303 will not work well with auto trans and stock converter... I know, I have all three or call Ford Racing and ask them yourself!

Ford Racing E-303 Cam Specs are as follows:

cam lift.311 int exh .311
valve lift .498 int exh .498
max lift intake 110* exhaust 110*
valve setting. .000 intake exhaust .000

cam timing @.004 tappet lift
intake opens 28* btdc closes at 74* abdc duration is 282
exhaust opens 68*bbdc closes 34* atdc duration 282

cam timing @.050 tappet lift
intake opens at 0* btdc closes 40*abdc duration 220
exhaust opens 40* bbdc closes 0* atdc duration 220

The power band for a E303 is about 3500-6000 rpm. It drives like a dog (dog about to die) in local traffic and stalls out at times. Just a heads up, do your homework and you will see that I am not alone. Another issue with that cam that is common is when in park on the truck is running, when you go to drive or reverse the rpm's will drop really low and the truck may stall (or mustang), again, also common. I was able to fix this issue by installing a Ford Mustang IAC adjustable idle spacer kit from Ford. Part number: F2PZ9F939A and it also helps with those of you who have a surging idle in your 92 - 96 f series or bronco trucks. I installed it last friday and my idle has been much smoother. Also shifting from P to D, the idle doesnt hit the floor anymore.

I also have 24# FMS Injectors, Custom MAF sensor, BBK twin 56mm throttle body, I am currently working on a custom switch on the fly chip. I also want to buy bigger fuel rails in the near future.
