    I hardly know a thing about the Mustang engines (although I would like to find a 5.0) but if the cam makes power go for it.

    If the cam has higher valve lift, you will need to get stronger valve springs to close the valves faster, because otherwise the extra distance that the valves will have to travel will negatively impact the engine's redline.

    depends on the cam.. there is a large assortment of cams that dont require this on the 5.0

    yea, i like my ecam. i made 295/332 at the wheels with performer heads and intakes, but with this cam i could prolly hit 310/350 at the wheels and at a higher rpm too.

    i cant remember exactly, google the name to find out. i know the lift is mid .500's. which is considerably more than the .498 of our e-cams.
