Alright i built a 351 EFI for my last bronco with the crane compucam. I was very dissatisfied with its performance. Im in the process of another 351 buildup. It will be a 9.5:1 351 with DOOE heads and an edelbrock EFI intake. If i have to converte to the Lightning computer or mass thats fine. If i converte what will my cam options be then. I want to be able to run something other than the three cams fireguy suggested. Also i jsut wanted the be sure that there wouldnt be any ill affects from advancing the cam. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you run Mass-Air you can preatty much run anything you want.

Where do you want your h.p. and torque peaks to be? Top end or low end grunt. A broad or narrow power band?

What # was the came you used before.



Here is a link to the engine I am buildings specs.

im looking for some low end. And id like a pretty broad power band. i had rather use he L computer for the simplicity of it, but ill do what i have to. The cam part # was 35-255-5. I dang shure dont want to run that. Also how will the EFI react to advancing the cam. Any ideas

A lightning EEC is just as sucesptible to a wild cam as any other SD computer.
(But you can tune a Lightning computer to cope)

What heads, etc, etc where you running?
What heads, etc, etc will you be running on the new engine?

A cam that works good in one engine combo may do verry poorley in another.

with the first motor i was running the stock E7's and the stock intake with .030 flattops. Hell it was about the same as stock. I know it was close to stock, but it should have been stronger than the worout stocker. With that cam it had no bottom end.

You can use just about any cam you want as long as the LSA atays above 114*. Any lower than that and you will need a either Mass-Air or a tunable S.D. Lightning computer.

That I dont know.
I simply know that S.D. Lightning computers can be tuned.

Many lightning guy still swap to Mass-Air so it must have some limitations.

Try searching over at WWW.NLOC.org
Please post links here to any info you find :thumbup

I would appreciate it. Ya know every engine is different. Mine may have jsut been a weak freak. As far as NLOC goes, im a member and i still cant seem to get much response. Oh well. Let me know what you came up with on the desktop dyno im curious. I appreciate your help and time. Thanks.
