Hey,
I have the hotrod cams in my 07 gt 5 speed and love them. I have installed these and comp mutha thumpers, and the hot rods are the better for a street stang if you drive normal at times. Whatever someone "heard" bad about hotrod cams, is just hear say. I have the cams, I have installed 6 sets, and EVERYONE LOVES THEM that I know. Currently I have the 93r bama tune, ford racing intake, jlt series 3 cai, sr underdrives, jba cat4ward equal length shorty headers, pypes catless x-pipe, pypes mid muffler bomb catback, 410 rear gear. Idle is mean as hell, absolutely nobody really wants to race cause your car will sound just dirty whore mean....


The ford racing intake I bought mainly because I am going forced induction. I have a non intercooled vortech v3 brenspeed kit that I plan on installing in the next couple of weeks. The intake looks great, I did not lose any low end at all, but my guess would be 25hp gain on the topend. I plan on doing the air to air cooler kit, most likely this summer....


so basically, I say yes to the hotrod cams, yes to the ford racing intake manifold.

I have FRPP hot rod cams and I'd suggest brenspeed, little harder lope, little more power.

I am looking into the Hot Rod Cams, Ford Racing TB, Ford Racing Intake, Ford Racing Headers, and converter for my spring project.

I have a 2007 Shelby GT, 17000 miles, with 4:10 Gears, Ford Racing CAI, x-pipe, and Ford Racing exhaust. The car made 330 rwhp last fall with Shebly adders and a BAMA Tune. I am hoping for 360 rwhp adding the cams, TB, intake, and converter. Not sure what converter as TCI may be too much at 3K. Need some help on this!

I want to go FI but 5K to replace a bottom end with only 17000 miles does not make any sense at this time.

Just my 2 cents........

that torque convertor is 518 bucks at American mucscle you may get some 10 or so hp out of some under pulleys 15 or so with some shorty headers

Few days late to this but here ya go.

The throttle body is a waste of cash unless you're boosted. The factory manifold provides enough flow until you get into a boosted application so save the cash. Also, I would skip the TCI tq converter as it's just a rebuilt stock converter. If you want a good tq converter, try looking at PI (performance industries). They stamp their own shells and provide internals, they're a more stout converter.

I haven't had any issues driving mine and it's still on the stock gears (3:31) and tq converter. I've got a Steeda CAI, ARH long tubes with a catted X, and the hot rods. The thing is fun as hell to drive. I don't have an email tune though, I took it to one of the best tune shops in the south and had them dyno it so she runs like a scalded dog.



These were not wide open pulls.

Ahh man yeah my friend told me why I wanted a throttle body and manifold intake if I wasn't boosted a few people said they could feel a difference but I just ordered my cams today what do you think I should get next? I have pypes bomb x pipe pypes bomb axle back Obama custom tunes jlt series 3 cold air I'm gonna switch out the exhaust and go jba h pipe and jba long tube headers. And still have 3.31 gears like you I wanted to cut down my 1/4 time so I wanted to go 4.10 that's when people mentioned about the stall and all the other stuff that could help me out

Your car sounds great! Long tubes the only way to go!

What stall are you running? Do you still have the OEM driveshaft?

I would grab a set of 3:73s unless you plan on going with a full blown tubed race slick. I've seen some guys get 4:10s because it makes them feel faster on the road and then they end up spinning too much at the track and then blame the tires. 4:10s can be problematic IMO with the 5R55 because the first and second gears are already short enough.

If I planned on being at the track a lot, I would spend some money on the mishimoto trans cooler with the electric fan and run a switch under the dash so you can run the fan and cool the trans between runs. Heat is a killer in automatics. The 5R55 also needs to have the second and third gear bands replaced with tougher ones if you really plan on making a track car, and even is street cars with power they're the weak points in our transmissions.

As far as exhaust goes, I'm running ARH long tubes with a catted X and corsa extreme mufflers but exhaust is highly preferential so the sound that you enjoy is totally up to you. I do recommend a dyno tune with cams and long tubes though, email tunes won't be nearly as good.

I haven't been back to the track since I installed the cams, long tubes, and had the car dyno tuned. Thanks for the compliment!

Thanks! Stock stall for now, I do plan on getting a 3200 or 3600 stall in the future. Still a stock driveshaft.

I installed 4:10 gears late summer and I don't regret it yet. Will have to see if the converter changes my mind.

All of the automatics came with 3:31 rear gears and I'm not even sure Ford offered anything different. The diff cover says 3:31 from Ford.

I put the hood scoop on as well

She's gone through a lot of changes.

The highest it showed before he had to cut the final run short was 324rwhp. He stopped it around 5500rpms because the head temps were getting high. It was near 100 degrees that day with high humidity. He made an educated guess that if he had kept into and ran it to 6500 it would have put down 340 at the wheels. The torque table was just that, a table, you could have set a plate on it. Tq was 313.

You can see where he had to cut the run short in the graph and how flat the torque is on it, thats impressive if you ask me. Nice amount of torque through the whole power band.

She's gone through a lot of changes. ford offered 3 rear gearing in 2005 to 2009 bg=3.31 without limited slip cg=3.31 with limited slip and cd=3.55 with limited slip and was available in an auto

Thanks! Stock stall for now, I do plan on getting a 3200 or 3600 stall in the future. Still a stock driveshaft.
I see what your what your saying and I do go to the track but I don't want to make it an all out track car it is my daily driver and I'll be going through tires like its nothing with the 4.10s correct? I'll probably do what you told me and go with 3.73

Vista blue since we both know how bad the 3.31 are top end how are the 3.73? Do you have any vids of pulls by chance and if I get gears will they affect HP TQ on the dyno?

The 3.73's are good. I like them. I have a 5-speed so second gear pulls from 45 mph are awesome!! With stock 245 tires if I launch anything higher than 2,500 rpm at the track, it spins and doesn't hook. If I launch anything under that it boggs down off the line. So I'm going to get some drag radials and hopefully it hooks pretty well. I don't really care about gas mileage so if I could turn back time I would have went with 4.10's. but if you do a lot of driving on the street if go with 3.73. I live in ohio so my cars only drivable for 7-8 months anyway. I don't have any videos on the pulls. I've heard they affect the numbers on the DYNO and I've heard they don't. Never had mine on a DYNO yet so idk. Is your car a Manuel?

So I'm going to get some drag radials and hopefully it hooks pretty well. I don't really care about gas mileage so if I could turn back time I would have went with 4.10's. but if you do a lot of driving on the street if go with 3.73. I live in ohio so my cars only drivable for 7-8 months anyway. I don't have any videos on the pulls. I've heard they affect the numbers on the DYNO and I've heard they don't. Never had mine on a DYNO yet so idk. Is your car a Manuel?
That's good man i need a better top end and I don't really care about gas mileage either I mean its part of having a v8 in my opinion but I don't want to sit there and spin either I also don't know how 4.10 are top end and unfortunately no my car is auto

Had my stock Shelby GT auto on the Dyno last October and with 4:10 gears and a 91 tune from BAMA she put down 336 HP at 6500 RMP with 320 lbs of Torque at 5100 RPM. I had issues getting the car to hook up under 3000 RPMs on the dyno. I would spin the tires. I have a video but it is a pull that the tires broke loose. It was a perfect day for the Dyno 70 and no humidity.


The car is a monster out of the hole. It is shifting at 6200 RPMs. Will smoke the tires shifting into 2nd and 3rd gears on street tires.


Purchased Kooks Long Tubes with Cats and Hot Rod Cams. Still need a stall convertor but I am still researching the RPM. I think around 2800 to 3000 should work but I can't get an answer from anyone. Hoping for 360-365 HP with my new setup.


Good luck with yours.... Don't fear the gear!

That's not RWHP though. Running the numbers it saw between 270 and 280 at the wheels.

That is RWHP! How would YOU know what the RWHP was on the DYNO? 270 is a STOCK GT! Everyone is an expert!

:facepalm

Because a Shelby GT is just a GT with suspension and body modifications. Unless you mean't to say Shelby GT 500, but then you're way underpowered for some reason.

Stock rwhp for a 3V is 260 ish btw.
