Finally starting to work on the '99 Explorer engine I pick up last winter and I'm looking for ideas for a cam. Engine will be going into a '78 Fairmont 2dr that will be most street driven with an occasional trip down the strip. For the time being anyway it will be carb'd, planning to use a 600 cfm Holley, a Performer RPM intake (or maybe an Performer RPM Airgap), and again for the time being sticking with the GT40 heads (will be replacing the crap valve springs tho), trans is a C4 with a shift kit and I do plan on upgrading the converter. Rear end gear is 3.73. TIA

As I've said before, I like the Comp NX 264 for combos like this. I know it says that it is a "nitrous" cam, but those same features help with some of the factory heads inadequacies.

If you keep the stock rockers, pay attention to your spring choice. Some don't provide enough radial clearance between the retainer and rocker body.

You might need some Titanium rods and a flow bench!  LMAO on floor

I honestly don't get it.

I'm sweating, my heart is racing, my clutch foot is twichin', and my right arm punched the computer screen doing an involentary 2-3 shift while reading all that.

I plan on using roller rockers and tossing the stock ones.

In that case, I'd pickup a spring kit from Alex's along with a shim kit.
