Cams

Do they make FRPP Hot Rod cams for the 99-04 gt's? All they have AM is comp cams and that takes a lot of internal modifications.

There are plenty of cams you can use with no internal modifications. Comp 270 is my pick.

Yes the comp 270 are the stage II cams on AM and need a higher stall converter (autos) and full exhaust, new springs to handle and you may experience PTV issues and need a dyno tune as well

Cams should be the very last thing you do to your car if you don't plan on building the motor or supercharging it. If there is anything else at all left to do, do that first including suspension.

I meant cams where I could just put em in there and just tune it and be done. I have a buddy that put em in his 05 gt and didn't do a thing just put the cam in there and all he's got is CAI and axel backs. He has FRPP Hot Rod cams.

You can get 270s in the stock heads if you degree them right, if you are worried about just being able to drop them in and go and not mess with it then the 262s are a good choice too. I just personally don't have a problem messing with the degreeing myself. You're going to need a dyno tune anyway to get your motor dialed in which usually runs $600 at least around here and then the cams and the install cost if you are not DIY so factor all that in and see if it is still something you want to do. My recommendation is honestly to just save for a supercharger, tune it to 400/400 and call it good.

Well I do plan on supercharging down the road a little and planned on it being my last upgrade as to dump tune all at once and save money I was just trying to see what fits in stock heads that way I can save money but if I have to upgrade then it is what it is. Looking at either a Vortech V3 SI or a procharger P-1SC

Well if you supercharge it either keep the stock cams or get forced inducted cams

If you supercharge it then just keep the stock cams, there is no reason to change them out on the stock rotating assembly.

You can supercharge the stock motor to about 400-425whp. If you are going to forge the internals then the PI heads/cams will support a good deal more. One guy on the Corral recently crammed 24psi into them and made over 600whp but it was really peaky and fell flat on its face at the 5800-6k mark. Figure 500ish is more realistic for unported heads and any sort of decent powerband. Honestly if you are going to forge the internals you should get a set of ported PI heads and blower cams.

You don't even need to port yours, MHS will send you a newly ported set from cleaned/inspected 8 thread cores and charge a $150 core charge. After you do the swap just mail yours back for the refund. Or sell them if they are in good shape for more than that if you can.

That is a good deal for a shortblock. Lol my budget shortblock is going to be mega budget and good for probably 700+hp. I have a teksid and forged crank in my garage, $250 picked up. If it checks out ok and the bores are good I'm just going to throw a set of low mileage terminator rods/pistons in it for another $700 total including bearings/studs and call it a day. $1k bulletproof shortblock and shows what one can do with the modulars lol.

Ok well I might just have to pick one up in the future. And yeah that does sound like a great budget build. I wish all the luck in it and want to see pics when done
