Hey guys I was looking into cams and was wondering how much HP I could get by adding a new cam thanks
if "intake manifold" includes ported heads, P&P lower intake and a windstar upper swap with full exhaust then sure lolJUST a cam? A cam plus retune(you'll need it) will probably get you around 25-35rwhp. Now if you add a higher-flowing intake manifold then expect gains over 70rwhp!
Well right now I just have lt headers dual flow master 40 cai an a tune...davidcseifert said:to give a more accurate estimation what all mods do you have done/will do with the cam?
Not accurate at all.V6stang6272 said:If you get a new cams then your going to have to get new pistons and rods and valves and o- rings unless you wanna put pressure on your engine causing it to blow
Adding a correctly spec'd cam will not 'blow your engine' this is tried and true fact.V6stang6272 said:How is that not accurate. It's common sense. Bolts ons help hp but don't at wreck the engine.
Adding just a certain part to your engine is stupid. That only causes more hp causing the engine to run harder when he steps on it so piston can blow ad screw up the whole engine.
I'm just saying if you wanna be able to thrash your gears and even gain more hp get what I said
Ppl add E-cams to 5.0L push rod motors for years now with no issues. It is a performance cam.V6stang6272 said:Yea but he wont gain anything special from it when he could put In a performance cams
