I have an 89 lx 5.0. I have a BBK cold air intake, accel ignition, plug wires ect. I have a set of shortie headers x pipe off road no cats 40 series flow masters with 2.5 inch pipe. The timing is bumped up. If I get a E303 cam will there be much of a difference in horsepower. Also I want the car to have a rough idle sound. Will this cam make much of a difference compared to the stock cam? Since I have the no cat exhaust will you be able to hear the cam more than the stock cam. How much of a difference?

Thanks,

I doubt you will gain much if anything with just that cam, the problem with 5.0's is the lack of head flow, if you still have stock heads, than a cam is pretty much useless. But as far as sound, I used to have that cam in my car, but I swapped it out later for a TFS Stage 2. It had a mild lope to it, definatly a little more aggressive than stock.

yeah you will get some gain but would be better with the heads combo.

I have that cam. You can definatly hear the lopyness. I just need the heads to compliment that cam.
