Question Porting Heads - Need advise on pushrods, springs, cams adjustable rockers

SO im going to keep the heads on my 3.8 and just have them ported. But im also thinking while i have the heads and intakes off i might as well throw in a cam, a set springs and some rods. ( maybe adjustable rocker arms?) So i would a cam that wouldnt break parts of my motor but still have a good high RPM range. (6000ish) What do u guys suggest for rod springs cams, and adj rockers if i even need them.

Well you've got 4 choices.

CompCams (which has an excellent help desk that will match the parts for you), RPM-Mustangs.com -which does custom work at very reasonable prices, Supersixmotorsports (uses 1-off Crower cams) a bit more expensive compared to the others -helps pay for their racing program & research) and Moranav6racing.com who doe s alot of custom work, as well.

-what year car do you have?

You should probably have your expected flow numbers before ordering the cam.

So you're going to need to know whether or not you're going 3-angle, 5 angle, split-ported, or flow ported, etc.

Once you figure out a blllpark of where you should flow after the porting, it will be a lot easier to select the cam, valves, pushrods, etc.

well maybe i should talk to the guy whos porting my intake and heads and he will have an idea for a good cam? And when u say flow numbers im guess u mean airflow, and i have no idea what 3 angle, 5 angle, split ported or flow ported means lol. So i guess ill talk to him and see what he thinks. I just ordered an throttle body spacer today and im looking for a 56 mm throttle body but the cheapest ive seen them run is about $250 at v6 mustang stuff.com. I called rpmoutlet and they didnt even have them for my car. Some other sites i looked around to but no luck. Know anywhere cheaper than v6mustang stuff when it comes to throttle bodies?

Forget about the spacer, if you can get a refund, get it . . .

RPM-outletcom has good prices for bolt-on stuff. GTRhipo.com is also close.

For Ford Racing stuff try gefracing.com or buyfordracing.com

yeah, he may have a pretty good idea if what they'll flow . . . you can't order a cam without knowing the flow numbers.
