I have a paxton kit on e85. 2013 5.0 stick. I wanna know if it's worth it to cam it with my setup and what brand?

No. If you want more power then just turn up the boost.

I've heard bad things about that. And why not gain some hp while getting a nice lope... It's not all about sound. I'll ask them.

Just goes to show you really dont understand your cams. If you can tune a nasty lope from the stock cams in ... you can tune a nasty lope from aftermarket cams out ...

You're looking at an easy, EASY $3k+ to install those cams just for some lope, but knock yourself out.

Thanks for your input master mechanic. I'll check it out.

Sorry, i just quit my job so i'm a little on edge, and taking it out on you. Spend some time doing a little research on the topic before making an investment. Cheers.

Only way you will get a actual lope from aftermarket cams, is by deleting the VCT and phasers, then installing lockouts. Your looking at 4-5k in parts and labor, tuning right there

This guy gained some decent numbers with the Comp Stage 2 Boost Cams.
Comp stage 2 Boost Cams + Beefcake TQ Booster

He probably got most of the increase with the Torque Booster setup. If you dont have one, get one. Best add on by FAR for a centri. (3.33 pulley/Tial Wastegate 10lb spring)

I like the idea of lumpy idel with just a tune but if the after market camshafts would give me some more hp plus the lumpy idel, I'm in.....

That's not what I'm talking about.
You need more than aftermarket cams for a lope

Now I see, I guess I didn't realize the cost, so with in mind I would just keep stock camshafts and get lund tune. ..











Now I get it , I didn't look at the cost. With that in mind I would just get a lund tune and look for hp elsewhere. ..
