Cam choice

need to get a good cam what's your guys opinions?
Current mods are
24#inj
Short headers
Gt40p heads
Gt40 intake
Cold air
Will upgrade head internals before cam install

e cam is nice, gives you excellent low & mid range power, B cam has and aggressive idle & excellent low end torque, F cam has a good idle and great mid to upper RPM power, x cam also has an aggressive idle wit excellent torque & HP gains all the way thru 6200 RPM, those are Ford's cam's don't know much about any of the other brands, hope that helps!

B cam for GT40s if you want a letter cam. I'd get a TFS1 for $100 off of a forum classified. You'll need new pushrods too most likely so make sure to measure. All the heads will need is a valvejob and then new springs/locks/retainers/seals.


Getting that T4M0 computer tuned will be a big performance bump. You'll need a tune with the cam anyway.

Those will be super close PTV wise for stock reliefs. Also not optimal for GT40s.

Yep, that's the one I suggested before too.




There is also the Crane 2030 for 1.6 rockers and GT40 heads and the 2031 for 1.7s.

I have the TFS-1 cam and 1.6 rollers. Did pretty decent, but if I could do it again, I would have went more agressive head and cam combo

To be blunt... no suggestion is 100% right except for a custom grind.


That said, the comp 2030 and 2031 were designed with GT40 heads in mind with 1.6 and 1.7 rockers respectively. A 94/95 Cobra responds VERY well to the 2031. Although I drove one with an E cam when I was first looking for a new Mustang way back in the day (2003) and that thing ripped.
