+1 the 303 and gt40 heads is a very simple and proven cam and head swap

There are 5 different "303" cams. B303, E303, F303, X303 and Z303. But if you go out and find 10 fox bodies, 7 of them will have GT40 heads and a B cam

There are a zillion different combos. I suggest heading over to the Corral and making liberal use of the search feature there. You will literally have a week's worth of reading material at your disposal if not more.

There are way better cams than the 303 cams. Even a basic TFS1 cam will do better. With GT40s there are two specific OTS cams designed to be used with them. The Crane 2030 for cars with 1.6 ratio rockers and the 2031 for 1.7s.

E cam does sound badass though, true muscle car rumble with that one but depending on your year it can give the computer fits. With a carbed car though this will not be an issue.
