Hey fellas,

i just bought a set of factory e7te heads and am gonna try my hand at porting. I paid only 35$ so it's okay if I mess up but i'd like to have something similar to gt40 flow through them. Any suggestions or pictures for the best way to port em? I'm not interested in any valve mods just yet but porting and polishing is pretty lucrative at the moment.

Also, i've been reading around and could someone please elaborate on the difference between a flat tappet cam and a hydraulic roller cam? Preferrably with pictures :D

Another thing, which would my motor have? The car is an 88gt but the guy i bought it off of said it was out of a 93gt, whats the difference there?

Thanks all

Also, my car has a completly jimmy rigged electrical system but it has an MSD 6AL box and a blaster 3 coil. On some mornings and at random stops, it starts reving up and down from idle to about 1300rpm in short 6 or 7 rev bursts, any ideas on what that could be?

Thanks, i've read the first link before but not the second, i'll check it out. Okay, it's a roller cam, what does that mean?? I understand how a cam works I am just unsure of the difference between the terms flat tappet and roller

Thanks! It makes more sense now. Anyone Got any advice on my electrical issue? I acctually just took the car for a spin and it seems i've exaggerated the spikes, it's only from idle to about 900rpm but annoying none the less

hard to say,could just be the famous 5.0 surging idle mystery..therea about a million different threads on idle surge on this forum and every other mustang forum on the net..search thru some threads,try some of the "remedies" people have used and see if any of that works
