Just was wondering how many ( if any ) of you guys have cams in your DOHC 4.6? Im having a Stage 2 Procharger put on in a few months and was considering a set of blower grind cams to go with it, but im not familair with any issues that come with cams in the 4 vavle motor :dunno: I dont want anything big or radical just something to give some extra hp ( if I cant get at least 20 extra hp out of it Im not going into the hassle of having them put in ) So anyone got cams? Or even better cams with a blower? ???

well I already have all the other boltons already, so as far as other mods to get :dunno: I was just looking at doing something a little extra for some more hp after the blower install. I would like to have ported heads but If I was to go that far, I might as well pull the motor and do forged pistons :-\ thats a little more than what I intended to spend :D

I have cams but I am missing two cuz i only have a 2v cams are almost worth it for sound but you can gain a good amount of hp with bolt ons and a s/c

I know one guy who put the Ford Racing cams in his 98 Cobra that had a few bolt ons and he gained about 30rwhp....

Now Crower is selling blower cams for 4V...the stage 2 Crower blower cams are gaining 50-60rwhp on 2V's so i bet you will see atleast that on a blown 4V....plus the added sound as a side benefit.

no, only the 03-04 cobras were "factory forged". ford even put the hypereutectic pistons in the mach 1. if you have a 4 valve, forge it, then cam it. :thumb:

EVERYONE :hammer:





I'd do cams if you can swing it.
More usable power band, and a sweet sound like droptop said.
I also like the Crower specs. ;D
