It cams during warm up, just not super noticeable. It is without a doubt much faster than a track key. I've had toys with huge cams well over 1000hp that ran on methanol. But that's a different game. Soon as I get my proof of what was done I'll post it and then the build begins!!!

it all depends on your application and goals. You can't just throw a cam or cams in a car and expect gains. It needs to go with your setup.

NA,blower,nitrous all require a special cam.

For instance on a NA coyote you can pick up 20-50hp from a cam swap, depending on how radical you get with it

With parts and labor your looking at about $3,000 + and probably about 30-40 hp with a off the shelf cam.
Won't sound different though, unless you delete the VCT and phasers and install lockouts. Which adds more $

And build the bottom end (Pistons,rods) and head studs

That's why you do it yourself (labor is where shops get you)
When my buddy and I open our shop, the going shop rate we will charge will be $95-105 a hour.

So if it doesn't have the aleged cams in it, which ones do you have or recommend and what does your car put out? Does that motor require being pulled for me to install cams? I have the full exhaust, a tuner, and a JLT cold air. Still has stock throttle body and maf is molded into JLT pipe and I don't know if it's stock maf. As well, when I go back to this dealership with flames in my eyes because they claim $9200 in the motor and I don't think it's there what approach should I take since they told me it was there. A tuner, ARH headers, JLT, kooks, and a lowering kit from ford doesn't add up to $9200 to me. They jacked the price for this stuff and have not produced the proof. I want in the car what I was told was in the car. I usually take the man on fire approach. Cops... I want to keep my car, I just want to force them to put in it what they said was there or buy me the parts. Ideas?

Just take a picture of the engine bay and we can tell you if those headers are on it. That's probably 3200 ish for parts and then probably another 1500 for labor? If it does have cams that number is realistic.

It has headers. I'll send a pic when the sun comes up. I don't know how one of my posts keeps getting reposted... I will admit in a heartbeat that you are more knowledgeable on this topic, however, please don't discount me as one of those guys who has stuff done... I build everything racing from ground up drag cars to mud trucks to boats... All of it. I'm just used to working with schematics. Usually ones I dreamed up and cadded out. To me I don't have anything cool if anyone else can replicate my stuff. I am also a toolmaker. I can make my own cam shafts from a billet of steel or make my own gears and axles etc from the steel of my choice to the hardness I desire (heat treat). Didn't mean that to sound dirty... Not trying to brag... Point is if you have an idea since your obviously a mechanic and want to re engineer or proto type something let's help each other out. I don't think the cams are there. I'll find out today. I like building race motors to the insane level, but I'm not a fan of throwing on a blower and calling her done. Too easy and anyone can do that. I want bullet proof power that no one else can make and throw away the drawings. Thanks man!

If you can do all of this what are you worried about? Only way to prove it is open it up!

FYI baddad not everyone here is mechanically inclined and/ or has time to do their own work. I changed the pulley, plugs , idler myself cause it's not rocket science and didn't take all my time to do it. For the rest of the mods I will be that guy that "has stuff done" as u said.. I didn't grow up around cars and my dad and grand daddy weren't either. So I suggest u pick ur words wisely around here cause ur not gonna make any friends. And another thing there's nothing wrong with slapping a sc on. Not everyone is looking for a 10 sec car a lot of ppl around here aren't looking to drag

Depends on what your plans are for the car. Best cams for NA would be a custom grind.
No the motor does not need to be pulled.

I have a built bottom end. Slight head work and stock cams for now.
Made 440 on motor and mid 700's on nitrous

Time... Job keeps me busy. I do a lot of prototyping for the oil and gas industry and now I'm into high end aircraft interiors. All that beautiful woodwork in the Jets of god knows who are really made of aluminum honeycomb and a thin layer of laminate. I'm automating the process for a local company so as much as I want to read every last post on these forums I have to study new processes at night. I view that as racing too. I can scare someone a whole lot more with my programs for cnc than I can with a car. Scares me sometimes...fun though.

Didn't mean to offend anyone, I just want to go the old muscle car naturally aspirated engine. I didn't know anything about cars either until I was 12 when my dad had a huge motor built for his Bronco. He went out of town and I wanted to know how power came out of a bunch of shiny parts, so I took it apart. Didn't end well for me, but started an addiction. I enjoy making my own parts because that's what I do for a living. I am a prototyping tool maker. I make one off parts for people's different ideas on different applications. Since I had the access and it only costs me time I get the most enjoyment out of making my own parts. I'm not competitive with my car, I just chase the numbers as time permits. I drive this thing as a daily driver too. I'm not knocking blown motors. I have several. Two have super and turbo chargers. This is just a different challenge to me. It might not even work as I am planning. I thought we were all here to help each other out and have fun with cars. No one said they have to be identical...
