super six motors
delk prefromance
tom morana racing engine
i would get a Dual exhuast sysytem first, and the prefromance gained depends on the specs and also if you have heads that will work well with them


i suggest you head over to 3.8mus5tang and V6power to read up, since you know wnat to really make some power


time for you to leave the shetlered harbor, and head out to the rough ocean

Be careful though...

There are sharks out there that just thrives on new meat.

If you want something off the shelf there's CompCams.com - If you want a spec'ed cam (They're sometimes cheaper, sometimes not) the above shops can help you out.

Don't expect to just drop a cam in and see gains. Cams need a certain amount of airflow for them to be effective. Granted the Split-port heads flow decently but in general they do not flow enough to need a performance cam.

he can drop in a tow cam and pick up 5-7% hp with a little racier sound.

I wouldn't turn a bolt on your motor until you needed to, but that's just my opinion. If you're not going with any type of power adder, then leave it. Yeah, I need a good nitrous cam in mine, but I'm going to wait until I have to......

I'd have to say that's pretty darned good advice!
