    I just want to make sure I understand this...the difference between the two firing orders is CAM dependent, and the same CRANK work with BOTH firing orders???

    I am rebuilding a 1999 V6 Mustang and I installed a Comp Cam 480 cam in place of the stock cam and new timing chain and gears. I had installed the stock camshaft sensor gear and torqued it to the required specs and then the engine would not turn. It makes sense since the the end of the camshaft...

    Hello Mustang Community! Just got my 2009 GT back from the shop with newly installed Hot Rod cams and a fresh BAMA tune. Ever since my Stang has driven terribly and is a chore to drive. The idle is around 800-900 from a start, but when slowing down to a stop, the RPM bounce from 200-1000...

    IThe camshaft journal got scratched I was wondering if it was still repairable or if it's done for good

    OK so I figured out why my 94 3.8 wouldn't run over 16-1700 rpm. Not fuel pump or cam sensor or TPS or filter or even the crank shaft sensor... It was the ring attached behind the harmonic balancer that the crank shaft sensor reads. I had come loose! So beware that it's not always an...

I recently rebuilt my engine with new everything a bigger .485 intake and exhaust cam, ported upper and lower intakes and heads, and shorty headers. I kept the obd-1 as I...

    So i cant seem to find the clearance for the spark plugs for my 2002 GT, I was hoping one of you all would know? And i was thinking of upgrading my camshaft to a stage 1 or stage 2 camshaft. If i we're to do this would i need to get new cam gears as well, And dyno tune the car?

    Hey all, What would you estimate that I would gain by installing Edelbrock E-Street Heads (1.90" intake) and an XE268H cam. Engine is a 351w with a performer intake and a 600cfm carb and hooker headers. Thanks.

    Hey all, I was wondering if I could get any insight on a realistic gain from a new cam in a 351w. The engine has a performer intake and 600cfm carb. I have been looking at either the XE250H or the XE262H. The car is a weekend driver and never sees track time, only street. Thanks, Adam

    Long time viewer, first time caller here. I've searched the forums and found some useful info but nothing specific to what I'm looking for. I'm sure its there, but maybe I'm one of those people Harry Reid was talking about that doesn't know how to internet. I have a 2006 Mustang GT and I'm...

    Hey all, Looking for a new cam, and I know it depends on the torque converter and rear end etc, but what would be an ideal cam for a 351w for the street that provides good drivability? Thanks, Adam

    Hello everybody. I have mainly just been a reader here to find out problems but recently I've come across what I believe to be a spun rod bearing and I decided to make my first post and get some help and advice on how to proceed. I have a 1999 mustang gt automatic 115000 miles with the real 35th...

    I had to break my engine down to find out what was wrong with it. It's at the machine shop currently and will be bored out to a 0.60" piston. I want to go up on the cam since now would be the time to do it. I was told to go with a Comp Cam 268H... The engine kit I'm looking at has an upgrade to...

    I am looking for a good shop that can install my stage 2 cams into my 2001 mustang GT. Any input would be greatly appriciated.

    Hey guys, I have yet to understand different kinds of cams. After I get my new headers and exhaust, I'm going to get a new cam shaft. I was wondering if any of you could gear me in the right direction, or even recommend a specific one. I have a 1969 coupe with a rebuilt 302 with an edelbrock...

    I've tried and I can't. On the end is 108R M (with a circle around it) then an illegible letter maybe and F or an E. 108RMF? and on the shaft is a C WG. Cheers.

    I have a 2001 v6, the engine is throwing a code(p0340) camshaft position sensor. gass milage is crappy, and it jerks at 2000 to 2500 rpms. I tried a new alternator and new sensor and that didn't work. Please help.
