I have these cams put on with a full exhaust, in order to get the real feel of these cams you need to have long tube headers, an X pipe or H pipe of some sort as well as axlebacks. It's a huge difference compared to the stock cams, so you'll be looking at real horse power gains with supporting mods of about 30 RWHP, which is alot more than you think it is!

You should notice around a 20 to 30 horse gain, however it really depends on the other mods. each build is different. Some may say long tubes are the way to go, but shorties may also be the way to go, but definitely a header upgrade will help the gain. Exhaust back pressure is something that is one of the few topics that is not as easy as "the bigger the better". It depends on your overall build.

Question

These Or Ford Racing Cams?

I would like to know if the thumpr cams are better than the Ford Racing cams. The power gain is about the same I guess, but would like to know if one sounds better than the other, or if one plays better with the stock valve-train than the other. I have a Ford Racing cold air intake, long tube headers, high flow catted pipe, and Magnaflow mufflers with a performance tune.

Question

Will These Hurt or Help a Boosted Setup?

I have a 2010 4.6 with a Kenne Bell supercharger. Puts down 495 whp and 445ft/lbs.

I want the cams mainly for the lopey idle, and can't afford any HP gains (on stock internals). Can I install these cams for more show than go? If that makes sense.

I would be wary of that change. The cams change the inflow and outflow of air which will require a new tune. When I replaced my stock cams for Ford Racing cams it required a whole new Dyno tune to have a viable resting idle as well as an appropriate intake and outflow recalibration.

The part itself isn't expensive but the new Dyno tune sure was. I didn't see a big gain. You will get a rough idle and an interesting shake with your car as well if you are into that kind of thing. Good Luck!!

These will add a little more power...but they are not the best choice for adding power to a supercharged motor.

These will get you what you want, but you will gain a little power. Tuner will probably be able to tune it down.

It will work, but not ideal if you want to make power.
Look for a blower specific cam.

With my tune not 100% dialed in, I've been getting 14-15mpg city ( if I go easy ) but it's easy to dip down into the 12's in fuel economy. Highway I can get around 22. Before I was getting 17-17 city and 28-30 highway. I also have full exhaust with long tubes, a catted X-pipe and 3.73 rear gears. I have hear dog people doing much better than I am with fuel economy but I think it relies heavily on your foot and the quality of the tune.

Question

What about with a turbo?

I am looking to install these cams, because they offer the sound and idle I want. Because of their rotation duration though, would these cams be benificial if they were installed in a turbocharged engine. I friend said these were an N/A nitrous cam. I have a nitrous kit and plan on getting a turbo or a Procharger kit. Probably turbo. I just don't want to spend the time and money and it turns out I was better off with stock cams. I don't want all of my boost to go straight out the tailpipes. Thanks.
