just curious

What kinda hp is my setup running I got a 5.0 with gt40p heads cold air intake shorty headers o/r h-pipe?

What will it be when I put in an e-cam and roller rockers?

Just curious as to how much power I've gained and am going to gain with the money I've spent in the last 2 weeks

That's really hard to tell because there are so many variables.
You started with what 215 -225 HP stock?
I'd hazard a guess that your current mods added between 25 - 50 HP maybe, and you may pick up another 25 -50 with the cam and rockers if you get it tuned properly.
Real world gains hardly ever match what is claimed by various parts manufacturers. Most of their figures come from ideal installations, perfect tuning and conditions.

Horsepower is expensive and the higher you get the more expensive it is.

A Cobra intake would be a good choice and probably one of the least expensive.

What's driving your decision to use the E-cam? There are much better cams on the market today for your setup.

Go here and punch in your combo - CamQuest
When it chooses the best cam for you, compare the specs against the E303.

Did you put in all of the specifications it asks for?
I just ran it, guessing at some of your specs and it worked fine for me.

Here are the part numbers of the top three cams it chose.

Comp Cams:
35-514-8
35-310-8
35-304-8

Biggest isn't always best. Give Comp a call and I'm sure they could recommend you a much better cam for your setup.
