E303 cam in a stock motor?

Hey all,

I've been mulling over ideas on what kind of mods I can do to my 5.0. The only thing I've changed on the motor is a Trick Flow upper and lower intake. I'm quite limited on budget so I was thinking maybe a E303 cam? I know heads would make the biggest difference but they're out of my price range right now. Is it worth it to change the cam or just keep saving?

Thanks,
Mike

I say run the e303 with some gt40 heads off an explorer or mountaineer.. That will be a direct bolt on and the combo will make great power.. I would wait to get some heads.. You may find some for around $1-$200.. And depending on there shape take them to the machine shop and get a 3 angle valve job and some porting and polishing.. That will allow them to flow great.. Also aftermarket headers will help that extra air it's breathing get out. All together save $500 and you can get some impressive numbers..

It maybe worth it. But that's at best until of course you change the heads then you will see even more benifit. I always say its best to do heads cam intake at the same time. It doesn't hurt to collect parts until you get everything you need then intall.

Sorry to respond late but thanks for the feedback. I will wait and save up for heads. Probably stock pile the necessary parts until its ready to go in. It's better to get all the parts in in one shot rather than bits here, pieces there. I'd like to be in the neighborhood of 300hp. Does that sound realistic with the right heads, cam and say 24# injectors? (already have equal length shorties and upper/lower intake manifold).

Thanks, Mike

Heads, cam, intake and exhaust should make 300 HP pretty easy, especially with a good tune. And not a mail order tune but a dyno tune.
