Cam

Does anyone have any suggestions on what type of cam I should get for a 2014 gt to make it sound choppy and about how much I'm looking at price wise

Well its going to be expensive because you need 4 cams (DOHC), the best way to figure out what cam you want based on sound is YouTube. Just go look up a bunch of different cams and listen to them on YouTube.

The main price point on cams seems to be around $1500 before install and tune, comp cams actually. For driveability I'd get the stage two cams. If you're racing I'd get stage 3. I believe they're nsr, but I'd double check with comp. just keep in mind install won't be cheap.

If you're just going for the sound get a cam tune

I've heard two coyotes in person with cams. Both had stage 2 comps. Not as lopey as I thought it would be at idle. I've heard some ghost cam tunes that were much more lopey at idol. But that's just for show and real cams can actually make decent power. At a price. Not your average mom and pop shop can install cams in these coyotes. And then get it running properly is a whole other story. After its all said and done, your probably looking at $2500 out the door and tuned. If not more. All for about 25-35rwhp and you better have a pro to tune it. Good luck!

If the sound is all your after and your pockets aren't deep, yes.

The stage 3 comp cams are supposedly good for about 50-70 rwhp... But barely streetable

The AED ghost cam tune is bad***. No need for wasting money on cams.

Idles poorly, hard to tune, throttle blips and surges, poor gas mileage, and some may even require a stall converter or off road mid pipe.

Yes if you must have cams I would get stage 2 only because they help in the mid rpm range and build towards redline. You really won't get much by them as far as peak horsepower is concerned(maybe 20-25rwhp).

I'd get the boss 302R cams before I bought the stage 2s. You'd see more gain from the boss cams and boss springs, but you would have to get your heads machined to clear the rocker arms. Also, with the heads being apart you could do a little porting and with the boss cams you could really wind up that motor and see some big gains. Most guys shooting for 500rwhp n/a are going this route.

My buddy did the stage 3 cams and I wasnt a huge fan. You need to really have the rpms up to notice the gains and the sound isnt what you would expect from a stage 3 mod .. IMO

invest in a supercharger if you want a beast. You are looking at $1,500 for the cams plus about $2,000 for a proffesional install with a proper Tune.

You will not see 70 RWHP like you keep reading. You are looking at 20-30 RWHP with a good Tune.

You want a lopey sound than get a cam tune from Lund other wise spend $4K on cams with spacers and lockouts to get the 5.0s to get a lope. Installing just aftermarket cams will not help the car lope, it will sound exactly like stock.

You can get a supercharger for $5K-6K installed and Tuned at some shops. you are looking at 100+ RWHP with a blower.

Why the heck would you bump a 3 year old thread? The OP hasn't even been on since 2013.
