Comp cams

What do I need so I don't reck something

What do I need to replace
Cam shaft
Cam gears
Valve springs

Anything else? Should I be doing any work to the bottom end (crank, bearings?)

Like I said in another post if you are replacing the cams depends on what stage you are going with i would go ahead and do the valve springs by comp. Depends on if you have the bolt on sprockets or pressed on you might need to get cam gears, my was a 00 romeo engine and it had press on cam gears.

I went with the stage 2 cams and didnt change anything to the bottom end nor the valve springs but I would recommend changing them though. hope that helps

Yeah, I would say you would be safe but later on down the road i would def go with Long Tubes and a bigger throttle body because it does help with the cams or it did with me anyways. Also, the chip is alright but if you have the money to get it dyno tune you would see more of a increase with the cams but you will be alrighty with the chip.

Oh, BTW the cam sprockets you can get from Ford which they are pretty decent price or go to autozone which are made my coyote or something like and they are pretty good. I like to stay with Ford stuff esp stuff like that.

Re: Comp cams

A supporting mod to really bring out full potential of higher stage cams would have to be a Intake Manifold swap.

I agree but its something you DONT have to do though, Ive got the stage three cams and stock intake and its runs pretty decent.

Like I said, it just unlocks the potential of higher lift longer duration cams. Some claims have been as much as 25+rwhp gain simply from intake manifold swap after cams.

naw, I would just go with Ford Oem or go to Autozone. Go to a ford dealership and see what you get them for and if they are high i will see what I can get them for here cuz dude hooks me up.

I used OEM stuff and it was cheap.
