hotmustang331 said:Hehe, it was an easy answer...I just couldnt help myself . But I have to trace down some sort of problem....Im pretty sure my plugs are going south. The car is missing a hair down low and isnt running quite right...im going to check it out tuesday. But it has nothing to do with the cams...it also could be my jacking around with the PCV system. I have the PCV hoses just dumping out...and the vaccume ports pulling off the CAI. Ill check that out too.

I'm running VT Stage 2's and Manley nextek valvesprings.. me and my dad did the install ourselves in our small 1 car garage. It's not necessarily what RPM the stock valvesprings are good for.. it has to do with running the bigger lope cams because they'll put more pressure on the springs, that's why you need a stronger spring. It took us about 5 days to do the full install, we only worked half a day for about 2 of those days though and took many many many breaks during the valvespring install, which took 3 days on it's own. The main thing about it is you'll get frustrated and you just need time to cool off and relax and try again. Or you could always pull the heads to make it MUCH easier.Stang|ess said:hey mike, what rpms are the stock valve springs good for?
one of the biggest things turning me away from getting cams is the inability of installing valve springs myself in a short period of time. she's my dd .
I usually shift at about 6200, the power starts dropping off after thatmrshl13 said:VT stage II cams and Comp springs. Idle had to be set at 650 to keep from stalling, but otherwise there are no problems. It pulls strong all the way to the new rev limit (6500) but I rarely pass 6000.
