Agree with you ? percent I have seen this before and it was a badass truck and it would have been a monster with a 4 barrel Holley but it was the stock CPU and idled like it had the wires crossed and was rich as hell wish I could have bought it but didn't ever see it again.Re: How to pick a CAMSHAFT
The very first line I typed was:
I never said anything about mud drags. Anyone running fuel injection on a mud drag vehicle is too stupid to worry about picking the correct cam.
If anyone buys a higher performance cam than the above limits for a stock truck computer, they will ruin the dependability of the truck. Fuel ratios will be way off, and idle will be so bad the owner will sell the truck.
Would then the whole package (cam, intake, exhaust) make you fail CA emission testing? Are you able to make both intake and exhaust mods and still pass smog from an emissions standpoint??
And then as far as a viz inspection I think I could get away with headers and they probably wouldn't notice anything else.... Or would they.... Maybe I don't have a proper visual on what these mods would look like under the hood.... But say nothing on the outside is changed; All I ever remember "them" looking for is pipes, O2 sensor cat, muffler etc.... And there's no reason you can't put all that on and maintain performance and flow right???
And to finish the questions.... It seem like doing one mod is a slippery slope. Can't do cam with out intake, can't do intake without exhaust etc.... so is it better to do all or nothing? Or can there be a middle ground where one can build a good-solid- long running motor making the improvements Ford couldn't back when my truck was originally put together.....
