Need help on what should i get next

Hey everybody I have a 92' fox and I've been wondering if I should buy a cam for it or should i wait and buy something else ? So far I got the trick flow intake manifold, Bbk headers, Straight pipe flow masters, underdrive pulleys, bbk fuel rail, bbk throttle body I think I'm missing stuff but yeah what should I do guys ? I'm aiming towards street and track setup for my car btw.

^+1! If you've already added some horsepower mods, I would stiffen things up before you add more power and twist or break something.

I got stock heads on. I'm planning to upgrade to some trick flow heads this winter when I pull out the motor and start taking it apart. Can I just cam it and then add new heads this winter ?

Basically stiffening up the suspension will give me a way better performance right ? With all these potholes in New York it's the worst to go crazy on suspension.

Oh and when I bought the car it already came with subframes

If your taking motor out wait til then to do a cam...gears first...I live in Pittsburgh and roads are horrible too...I spent a lot of money on suspension over the years...made a lot of mistakes for the bumpy roads...now I have an expensive but road friendly suspension...since your just beginning build get the gears and some lower control arms...won't be rough on the road...

How much highway do you do??? When I'm on the highway for more than a 2 hour trip with my 373 n 5speed its not enjoyable...cruising at 70 is around 2300rpms...so if traffic is cruising 75-80 its too much for a long trip...355 was nice but only if you do a lot of highway....373 on auto same thing for lots of highway...just my .02

I'm on the highway a lot. From home to school. The school to work. Work back home. I'm always on the highway.

And it's a trip always too. Including if there's traffic.

I have 4.10's on my aod fox. It's a little much on the highway but perfect around the city. 80mph is on up there in rpm's

I agree with liebert91stang, with my 3.73s in my aod 65-70 is about 23-2500 rpms. Plus at stop lights you get a lot more power witch is always good.

Don't fear the gear. On a stock app you need the ratio. Just do 65mph on the highway and you're good. Then again, something to be said about having 600hp and 3.08s and doing 1800rpm at 80 lol.

Very true! But the 3.73's and 4.10's definitely bring some fun factor!

Ill just stick with 3:73

I was thinking about suspension setup also. I want a decent suspension. Something that can take these destroyed roads here in New York lol.

Thanks tho guys for actually helping me out and giving some pointers.
