We know, but it just goes to show you how carefully we read your posts

For Cold Air induction, I would go through ebay.

Everything else, I would go to the site sponsors. Tell theym you're from MustangEvolution, and they'll steer you right.

Rob has a new cam page now and I do the specs,
I also can refer you to get porting and anything else,
making a cohesive package that matches from
airfilter to tailpipe. Even if you have used parts!

Rob has or can get LOTS of parts that are not listed yet,
we need to have that part of the site up so you guys can
save some money!

Don't worry we really knew what you meant, but you did give us a good laugh.

All the tools you'll need to replace the CAM with. Plus a chip reburn to adapt for the new cam.

Yes, especially on a 99^ but the 94-98 needs a bigger cam too.
The 99^ has good flowing heads and intakes, where the 94-98's
need ported heads and intakes to keep up. But they both get alot
from a cam...

how much work is it to install your own cam? is that practical for someone that doesnt have alot of mechanic previous experience- and could it be done in a day if a mechanic helped along with heads intakes and cam/.?

Possibly a weekend, but faster if everything
comes apart easily. A good mechanic, probably
could get it in a long Saturday with good help,
but trying to learn everything by the helper
slows it down a bit...

I am a 20+ yr veteran mechanic and I was able to do it in a day with help from another Ford Mechanic. prepare for it to be a weekend long event

When I did mine it took about 10 hours, and I ran into alot of problems. Plus I replaced a few parts while I was at it, so without the trips to the auto parts store, I would say bout 7-8 hours. Maybe quicker, hell I would say maybe 6. It took me bout two hours just to get the damn harmonic balancer off.

It was about 6 hours for me I had a compressor so I used air tools to disassemble and that was a breeze. The prep and clean to put stuff back in was actually the most laborious part. You have to pay particular attention the the installation of the Cam position sensor and cleaning the Block deck of all the old gasket material and stuff old rags in the cylinders as to prevent to much gasket scrapings from getting into them.

Actually I never remove the CPS from the timing cover and I've done this 3 or 4 times with no problem.

I don't because their really is no need to. All manuals say to remove the oil pan to swap a cam too, but do you? Plus if you remove it then you have to realign it and that's just a waste of time IMO. When I remove my timing cover, I remove all the bolts and give a little whack on each side with a rubber mallet and the thing basically falls off. My way are by no means the "right" way. They're just the way that I found works best. Also, I don't see how you can damage the CPS at all anyways. I think the way they have been damaged in the past, is by people playing crew chief and using a BFH to make it fit. Not good. Maintenance should be fast and slow at the same time. If something isn't right, step back and take a look.

Well there you go!!! That was what I wanted you to say. The next time I take a cam out I will try this.

Thanks for the explaination Rob. Everyone here who is looking to do a cam swap will enjoy the information
