Cams?

I am thinking about getting an aftermarket set of cams but don't know a lot about the different brands. I was looking on american muscle but don't know which to go with, ford racing hot rod cams or comp cams?

What exactly do you want to do to your car?

Do you want it N/A, Turbo, or S/C?

Have you set your mind on only those as options, because MMR racing probably one of best mustang performance part dealers that I know has special cams designed specifically for 2v, 3v, and 4v.

Check them out!!!

If i do turbo or s/c it wont be for a few years, i am only 17 and don't really have the money for that. I haven't totally set my mind on just those, those were just the two that i came across while bored and looking around on american muscle

Noooooooo Waaaaaiiiiiiitttttt! Dont do it! Seriously look up Brenspeed Detroit Rockers. They have a better lope than Hot rods and give you better power. I speak from first hand knowledge of owning Hot rod cams. They are nice, yes, but if you want a little more lope with a little more power then brenspeed is the way to go.

Both Comp Cams and Ford Racing making a great set of Cams. I think you'll be really happy with either of these options! Aftermarket Cam's really wake up the 3V GT's.

I went with a set of Comp Cam Stage 3 NSR Cam's on my 2011 GT and have absolutely no complaints. They're very lopey, drive ability wasn't affected much and my car picked up 40+ RWHP towards the top of the RPM range! It may not be a bad idea for you to look into Springs, Retainers, Phasers etc.. while you're in there. How many times are you going to be that deep into the motor? If you do all of the supporting hardware, you'll never have to go back in there. The Stock Springs aren't the strongest out there!

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future! Our Mustang Experts are here Monday-Friday from 9AM-9PM EST and Saturdays from 9AM-5:30PM EST. If you want to hit them up, their number is 866.727.1266.

You need new phaser bolts and a timing chain wedge tool. Maybe valve cover gaskets. Also the tool to disconnect the fuel inlet from fuel rail.

I have the FRPP Hit Rod Cams. They were about a 6 hour install with a few breaks here and there. I have recently added a roushcharger and the cams work really well with it.

Won't make it louder actually but will just lope. So if you like your exhaust now then stick with it. If you want it louder do it now.

You have to buy phaser bolts regardless

If you're gonna do it yourself buy the timing chain wedge, that saves you from taking off the whole front cover & you don't have to re-time it again. Saves alot of labor
