Default Cam and trick flow heads

I have a 1993 gt and I plan on changing the heads. What kind of cam should I use with the Trick Flow heads?

Have you looked into their top end kit? Almost Everything you need is there

I would contact TF and tell them what you have in the car and where you want to be. They have countless dyno hours on their products and would be best suited to tell you.

I run a Trick Flow cam on mine.

Torque curve is extremely smooth and untuned it's putting over 300ft-lbs to the wheels.

my setup made 296 horse and 340 torque at the wheels, but my setup required a custom tune. My car ran super lean without the tune too. It too depends on what this car is gonna be used for, I built mine for a daily driver. As mentioned earlier in the post trickflow has a complete kit that works well with no guess work.

Or you can call Comp cam or Lunati and they will ask you a slew of questions to better suit the car's needs.

On a daily driven car I would suggest our top end kit. You can't go wrong with it and we already did the homework for you. If you already have the heads use the stage I cam with no worries of PTV issues. If you have more questions please call me at 330-630-1555.

Thanks, Gregg
