Finally got off my arse and changed my cam (pic)

well i did it. changed the cam to an EF unit in my ED, and i must say took it for a quick squirt then and it just loves to pull at about 3000 rpm all the way to redline. would be an excelent upgrade for all 91DA engine owners who are on a budget. have got pics off the whole thing but here is a pic of the final product http://www.fordgallery.com/showphoto...cat/500/page/1.
if you have any Questions just ask.

Re: Finally got off my arse and changed my cam (pic)

ok why did u refer to the engine as a 91DA?

And, how much did it cost? Was it hard to do?

Re: Finally got off my arse and changed my cam (pic)

oh is that the green rocker one like in the pic? I thought they were out of fairlane sportsmen? I could be way off though?

Wouldn't you go aftermarket instead of factory?

Re: Finally got off my arse and changed my cam (pic)

because thats what it is, 87DA - EA-EB1, 91 DA - EB2-Early ED, 94 DA - late ED-EF. cost me $15 for a new rockercover gasket, got the cam for free from work. you could pick one up from a wreckers for around $50. was quite easy to do took me around 5 hours just taking my time and cleaning the engine bay up a bit as well.

Took us about 3 hours, including a trip to the wrecker to get new rocker gear.

Actually it's probably a 30 minute job, we just get carried away at wreckers.
