Re: FMS X303 camshaft

Yeah the TFS cams are really popular in the US at the moment with the TFS-51402000 being used on the 5L engines and the TFS-51402001 and TFS-51402002 getting good numbers with the strokers. Plus they are nice and cheap.


224 intake/232 exhaust .542"/.563" 112 with power range of 2800-6300rpm


236 intake/248 exhaust .574"/.595" 110 with power range of 3500-7000rpm

Re: FMS X303 camshaft

The XE274HR is pretty much TFS stage 2 equivalent, and the XE282HR is TFS stage 3

Re: FMS X303 camshaft

Why dont you guys use solid rollers?
Is it a cost issue?
Or is it that a solid roller wouldn't give you much more power than a hyd roller?

Re: FMS X303 camshaft

The Comp cams XE282HR is listed as having a power band of 2600-6600 in a 5.0. The stroker will bring that down a couple of hundred revs. The peak lifts are .565" inlet & .574" exhaust.
The stage 3 Trickflow is 3500-7000rpm and .574" inlet & .595" on the exhaust.
Both cams would well suit the Trickflow/AFR heads where the heads are still flowing well into the .600" lift regions - but the stage 3 would probably be best set up advanced to bring the power range down into realism.

PM me for your Pro-M prices

The 2 drag racers addages
1. If you are in control - you haven't got enough Horse Power...
2. If you throw it up in the air and it comes down - It's too heavy...

Squeezed is nice, stroked is good, blown is unbeliveable - but all 3 is heaven

Not that there is anything wrong with the 282, its a strong cam, but i'm getting older and less tolerant....
Racer, you have this bumpstick so can you please give us a few of your engine specs?

If a 347, at what RPM did peak power occur? I don't want to rev the crap out of my engine for a few extra ponies. My current cam (Crane 2030) peaks at 5500 and I just want to extend this to 6000/6200 but no more.
