    Any cam CAN possibly throw your ECU for a idling nightmare. The steeda 19 cam is supposedly ground to help prevent this but there are plenty of cars with STOCK cams that can't idle for shit so how hard you believe the "hype" is up to you. I would personally call a reputable cam company and ask them what they reccomend. Guys study engine building to for years to learn what makes power and what doesn't. I leave cams to the experts. Comp Cams is my choice with their new xtreme energy series

    yes what he said, and whatever you do, stay away from the "e" cam. the guy before me installed an e303 cam in my 95 gt, with stock heads and
    intake manifold still on the car. what an idiot... I second the comp cams as noted above, but also you might want to look into saving up
    and buying a h/c/i package deal such as trickflow, or edelbrock, where all the components are made to fit each other.

    off the shelf ford cams in my opinion suck..the technology isnt there...im partial to a 1087 cam if you can find one with the oringinal grind, i just bought one and am preparing to put it in with gt40p heads ;D and also comp cam is good or get someone to custom grind you a cam..like ed curtis or jay allen...
