Re: crow stge 3 cam in an EL 6cyl

I put a stage 3 in my ea. Every one told me that it would idle like absolute shit if at all. To tell you the truth, when it is warm there is nothing to complain about at all. you shouldn't need xr valve springs, but I do recommend a vernier cam gear to even out the power curve which makes it a much nicer car to drive. You might consider a K&N panel filter or something as it is going to be sucking a lot more air with the free flowing exhaust and all!

Falcon S, MPFI, red, Resprayed with colour coded bumpers, motorvator extractors, walker hi-flow cat, 2 & 1/2 exhaust system, cold air intake using hi-flow K&N pod filter (heat sheilded), stage 3 crow cam with a vernier cam timing gear. Severly ported and polished EB 4.0L head, shimmed valve springs - compression ratio (9.5:1 +). Making 145rwkw!!

I know of a couple of Stage 3 Crow cams in EF/L's and the only have a decent exaust and good filter.
They run fine.

I have a st2 crow. Idle does get pretty lumpy at times. I have pretty high compression so I guess this too would cause idle degradation with the cam?

Re: crow stge 3 cam in an EL 6cyl

if you are worried about it then id go a stage 2,m With higher comp it makes the idle quality better once u start getting bigger cams.
even the wade 1004 when freezing cold can lump a lil, but once warm its pretty good

EB FALCON
98 T5 gear box (was auto)
Wade 977b cam
3.7 lsd
AU bottem end
ELXR6 ported Head
