swap to stock cam from F-cam?
I parked my mustang for the turbo build. I started tearing a few things down checking some things. Something in the back of my head was telling me to pull my heads off...
Pulled my heads off and found a chamber with the valve seal all burnt/chewed up b/w the valves (thinnest part where the two valves almost meet) The plug in this cylinder also had the ground strap burnt or broke off (didnt look at it close enough)
Needless to say thats going to have to be fixed, i am going to pull the motor again since the rear main leaks and i am going to inspect the bearing related to another issue.
I got to thinking about swapping back to a stock cam and a performer intake and keeping my TW heads. I like the idea of a tame stock idle and the well mannered/smoother driving of a stock cam.
The way i am seeing it... The turbo i am going to use (mpt70) can push more than enough air to split the stock block, so why not have the smoother idle and better manners driving around while i am at it. If i have the ability to easily split the stock block regardless of cam choice them it would seem to make sense... Plus a stock cam would make more low end and it would keep the RPM band down promotoring more longevity out of the engine.
Just trying to get some idea and input from people running the stock cam or have done similiar swaps. I'd like to do it, but i keep thinking maybe it would be a step backwards, i'm not wanting to kill power, just shift the powerband down some....
