Re: 5.0 Tuning Help Needed
Thanks for the reply, sounds easy...
The reason why is simple - I had a flat tappet engine lying around that was a great re-builder core. I could also keep driving the 5.0 until the very last minute before the swap. As it turned out, a very wise move. I bought a crane cams valve spring/retainer/lock set from USA, but they posted it surface mail over Christams, Doh!! 8 weeks to arrive. I also wanted an engine with a larger cam, but in NZ hydraulic roller cams are really expensive. The only HR cam I have is an E303 which I was saving for a 347 with the now spare roller block a little later on. So I figured why not just run a flat tappet cam. These are the cams I'm used to using, so I knew I could pick a reasonable cruiser cam just looking at the specs. This is just my daily driver get-to-work car, so I didn't want anything over the top, just another 800RPM over the stock all-done-by-4500 cam.
Thanks again, and if anyone else has any useful input, I'm all ears.
