    for a off the shelf cam the F303 is fine, its a little more agressive than the popular E303 cam. I know of a handfull of fox cars that went with the F over the E cam around here and they all like it just fine. What heads you plan on running?

    Well with those heads and the lift that the F cam has you will have to have piston clearance, you gong to put new ones in it.....or keep the ones you have? Clearance WILL BE a issue for you. That will be a nice combo, top it with something like a Edelbrock, or the old and reliable GT-40 :) :)

    I think that cam will cause PTV issues if you stick it in now, you need to check for clearance FOR SURE :angel: you dont want the piston and valve to kiss.........that would SUCK :( :( :(

    when the motor in my pickup was rebuilt a piston slapped the valve. There was apparently shavings left in the head from milling it and the valve stuck open :nonono: That makes me real confident of how my motor was built

    Yeah you will need to get the pistons flycut with the 185's and the f.
