Manual with 2.73 gears, explorer gt40 intake and gt40p heads. Don't get m wrong though my car pulls harder overall but down low isn't as good as the stock cam. Gears would help tremendously with that problem.

Set base time around 10 or 11 degrees and see how it feels. You should feel a nice peppy off idle pull

Mine felt more like a dog off the line at 10*, I played around and found that mine worked best at 14*.

A little bigger stall would help a lot. If you look on ford racing it should say the recommended stall to use. But I would guess in the 2500-2800.

Also the typhoon is an ok intake for stock to real mild. But you may gain some low end torque back with a better intake. It would also help to port and polish it. The typhoon has real bad casting flash in it.

I think what he is saying.

The reason you lose low end torque is because you have more air coming in than going out. So adding the 1.7 on exhaust will let more exhaust out, keeping the intake the same. Honestly imo if you plan of further upgrading, then I would deal with it till then. Instead of buying rr's twice, and hoping that it will work.A lot of people do what he suggested on forced induction motors.

Gears are killing the cam? don't they recommend using a higher gear ratio with cam?

That's what I was always told. They are supposed to help keep you in the power band...

Bigger cams need a higher gear ad a higher torque converter for autos to stay in the correct rpm range/ power band. Think about it this away. A taller cam can have a 2500-6500 power band. If you are running a 2.73-3.55 gears then you would need to always keep a lower gear to be in your rpm range.

Sorry, I had the same set up as 93slowstang. That's what I meant referring to loosing a lot of low end.

My stock cam and stock geared car run 14.6s on a 275/60 tire (28 inches) I added a e cam and 26 inch tires and no change in my et or trap. I lost ALOT of bottem end. I should of gained .2 tenths alone just by switching to a 26" tire on that car. I got the cam for free( my old car) paid 150 ish for trick flow beehive valve springs, 100 ish for a new time chain, 80 ish for a gasket set, 100ish for arp head bolts, 120 for heads to get freshened up yada yada yada. In total I spent in the 500 range for a car to sound better lol

If you are talking about a Typhoon intake, they are made in China and prone to failing from what I have read about them.
Pick up a Cobra intake and have it ported by Tmoss Porting. You will be much happier with the intake and the performance.
