5.0 cam with 110LSA

It is my understanding that 110 LSA doesnt work with EFI 302 engines very well and that a 302 in EFI trim needs a 112 or 114 LSA to function without problem. Im wondering if anyone has found a remedy for this problem to run a 110LSA with EFI?

I've only heard of the 94-95 gt having that issue. Generally a tune fixes the problems associated with it.

The E cam is a 110 LSA cam and a lot of ppl ran and still run it. It can be tuned out although I have seen more than a few cars with the E cam have issues at very light throttle off idle. Lots of bucking... I had a 112 LSA cam in my 95 Cobra and the driveability after I had it tuned was just as it was stock. Is there a reason you are looking at a 110 LSA cam specifically?

I was under the impression that even most 86-93 cars had difficulty with running the steep 110 LSA. The Lunati 110 LSA cam I have found is perfect for the combination im building and has the exact lift and duration number im looking for and operated exactly in the RPM range where im going to need it to operate. I dont have a problem with the 110LSA, infact I prefer it as it creates a more power in a specific RPM range. The question is if I do have problems whats the best way to fix it? Would a stand alone fuel managment system be the fix for this along with a good dyno tune from a performance shop?

Yes it's mainly for 94-95s and that's one of the reasons I'm went with trickflow cam because it has a 112

Its my understanding that a 94/95 can use the 110LSA cam if a fox computer is used. Aside from the computer is there anything I can do to ensure the 110LSA cam will run correctly? Any vacum spots I need to modify? Come on surely someone out there is running a 110LSA and had issues and knows what needs to be changed in order not to have issues.

I guess I just have the pre buy jitters. Im sure the 110 LSA wont be an issue with a proper tune.

A buddy of mine ran the E cam with a A9L in is SN95 with a PIH harness adapting it so it was just plug and play. The fox computer require some re-pinning among other things but I also ran the PIH harness for awhile with a A9L and just bolt ons and the car did run great.

However, I'd recommend a good tune for the SN95 computer as they are faster, more advanced and you can datalog with them. As far as your cam, not sure how much the cam you want is costing but if it is a new one it's likely up in the $300 range which will get you close to a custom grind price from FTI. I always recommend a custom cam vs OTS if you are buying new. If used, throw a $100 TFS1 cam in there and call it a day.

During this post I have been doing more and more research and have found that the cam I was eyeballing wont work with my explorers EEC-V computer. I have a 2000 explorer and would very much so like to find a cam for it as a vehicle that runs a 2.6 60ft, 11.8 1/8th and a low 18 second 1/4 is just annoying me very badly. Plan was to beef up the engine and then motor swap it into a foxbody, but it doesnt look like im going to get to do it that way. But this doesnt mean I cant go ahead and purchase my selected parts list.

the biggest problem has to do with the factory tune and when the computer tells the injector to fire, you really want the injector to fire a little before the valve opens but not too far before. the 110LSA messes with that.

most aftermarket tuners can't fix it either unless its a true standalone system.

I would personally stop messing with trying to make a 2000 Explorer into anything fast and worry about hopping up the motor when you do eventually swap it into a stang. Then no worrying about Exploder specific stuff.

Yeah thats kinda my thoughts too. With exception to maybe a set of heads and intake as I can sell the explorer stuff to help me with the cost.
