I know in the 87-93 it will work fine with the ecu but they say the 94-95 has a very finicky ecu. the alphabet cams are "supposed" to be computer friendly but we all know how that works out lol

Standered or auto? If standerd e303 will work fine with out ecu upgrade(tune) if auto look at f303 (no tune to ecu) but vise versa if auto and putting e303 in how ever f303 requires 2500 stallconverter and dome head work

Yes u will then

---------- Post added at 04:24 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:02 PM ----------

The f303 cam was designed for the auto so u wouldnt have to upgrade ur ecu with that cam how ever as i said b4 u need a 2500stall converter to run the f303 cam and better valve springs ull also have to check piston to valve clearence with the f303 (recomend doing the valve springs and checking ur cleariences with ether the e303 or f303 but for sure with the f303) but u also need to tune ur ecu in an auto to run the e cam(a stall converter wouldnt hurt ether) but to do it right i would just run the f303 cam abd b done with it (with exhaust msd ignition and a good ram air or cold air filter should b good for 325hp or more bepending on weatger or not u tune and the quality of the tune

I've heard great things about the E-303. Depending on what kinda piston work you wanted to do?? And how much lift you want

---------- Post added at 06:49 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:46 PM ----------

With the auto u really need the extra kick the f303 delivers though. basicly makes up for being 1 gear short the 5 speed std tranny.

You can probably get away with the F cam with your stock heads. It's not all about the lift of the cam as lobe separation plays a big part too

The only somewhat acceptable cam for the auto is the E cam. It's recommended to use a high stall converter on both, as well as a tune.

Funny when i talked with ford racing directly they told me the f was the one made for the auto annd all the ford cam source books ive read say right next to the f303 in brackets (recomended for automatic transmission) so hey maybe i got diffrent sources i dont know but even all the engine shops between kelowna and vancouver say f303 is for the auto so ask around i guess but for me its not really worth the work buy a 351 w and build a little 7l strocker then ur talking real power!

Really because even in their catalog it's recommended that the f cam be used with a manual. Every site says the same thing. Maybe you need to re-read those sources. I do agree about building up a 351, more reward with the effort.

The cam that seems to have the least issues with the ecu is the steeda #19. I would check that one out too.

I have a 94 5.0, and when it comes to picking a cam for the 94-95 mustangs, the closer your degree lobe on a cam is to 114 degrees is better and less tuning , the e-303 is 110 degree lobe , I went with trick flow stage one cam which has a 112 degree lobe. But if your gonna pick the F-303 the power range is 1500-6500 rpm on them just make sure your heads and intake match that power range!

The e-303 is fine if your staying in the idle to 5500rpm range,.. you will just need a tune for your car to run smooth!!! Personally I'd go with the TFS Stage 1 cam! But you can't go wrong either way!

You would get the most out of any cam by having it tuned. You may not need it for that one, but I would recommend getting one. Your car will run better with it.

Didn't think a flash tuner would work on pre 96 vehicles.

AM sells a flash programmer for a 94-95. Pretty sure the plug in is under the driver side dash near the center console

The only thing I see for the 94-95 is the eliminator chip.

Sorry about that , the 4-bank eliminator chip from sct, it's $279 I think!!! But you can get a dyno tune with custom chip for $460-$600 depending on who you go too!!
