Cam is usually the last place to mod on a engine. However what are the cars current list of mods and future list of mods and I will see if I cant point you to a good off the shelf cam for your combo that has the large lift you are looking for. Also I will need to know if the car is auto or manual. If the car is auto I will need to know if it has an aftermarket torque converter and if so what its stall speed is. Please be as specific as possible is list of parts to maximize my ability to help you.

Auto or manual? Have torque converter? Also do you have any future plans to use boost or nitrous? Also what kind of car is this? is it a fox body or a 94-95 mustang 5.0 because that very much so matters.

I also will need to know what rear gear ratio you have.

Also what rocker arms 1.6 or 1.7 1.72?

Im going to go ahead and tell you a single profile cam is the way to go since boost is possibly in your future. This means the cam should have the same intake and exhuast lift and durration.

1.72 arms. And 3:73 gears. Also a 89 5.0, and I don't think we are going to boost it now

You dont think you will boost it ever ? Or you want to buy a different cam again if you do boost it? This does make a difference in my recommendation.

Well your heads are the factory E7 heads which have a 65% exhuast output still making a single profile cam the optimum choice. With the 3.73 gears I recommend the B303 cam with .480/.480 profile to maintain driveability. If your trying to make the cam as big as possible becasue of sound and dont care about driveability the largest I would go is the E303 .498/.498 profile.

Remember though big lift doesnt mean big power you are limited by your E7 heads. If you are going to buy aftermarket heads in the future I would recommend doing that first before choosing cam.

If it was my car and I knew I was never going to use boost I would use this cam which is like a B303 with .480 lift but has a little different exhuast durration to help the smallish E7 heads make maximum power.

However if you are going to never upgrade to aftermarket heads your stock cam matched with your 1.72 RR are the best performers as far as 1/4 mile E/T's go.
