    look around more first. letter cams are dated. there are better cams out there for about the same money. call up comp cams or another cam company and let them help you.

    You can run pretty good times with a B or E, as people have proved on this forum, but im sure there are some better cams out there.I would consider a custom cam..

    Make sure to get the 1.7 rockers and you will be good to go with the lift of the e and the bumbety bump of the b.

    I loved my f cam that sucka used to rock like my motor mounts were broken.

    im using 1.6 stud rockers with the B cam...the B cam will be a rougher idle and pull harder then the E or F

    Rough idle has more to do with overlap - determined by the lobe serperation. Closer lobe sep = rougher idle.

    i got a dyno sheet making 293 rwhp (don't remember torque) runing performer heads 2.02, performer RPM intake, F cam, 1.7 ford rockers. I love the setup. It really rumbles and you can really tell it has a cam. The idle is somewhat rough, the engine shakes like a red headed stepchild after a beating. gotta love it.
