Ford Small Block Hydraulic Roller Camshaft, Racing Only
|This item qualifies for FREE Shipping in the continental United States!|
This Ford Racing camshaft fits 1985 and later Ford 5.0L (302) HO V8 engines (Mustang and Mk VII LSC) with roller tappets only (also fits 1994-97 351W with factory roller cam when used with mass air EFI). Requires Roller Tappets (Part No. M-6500-R302, sold separately). Not compatible with hydraulic or mechanical flat tappets. This camshaft is recommended for stock or mildly modified engines where more midrange and top-end power are desired, and sacrificing a smooth idle and low RPM torque is acceptable. This camshaft is ideal for supercharged applications with a manual transmission. Ford Racing recommends against using this camshaft with an automatic transmission. Not legal for use on pollution-controlled vehicles. Made in USA.

*Measured with 1.60 ratio rockers on 1985+ 302 roller cam engine. Different blocks and different ratio rockers will yield different results. For comparison, the stock 5.0L HO camshaft advertised specs are 266°/266° duration, 0.444" valve lift.
Note 1: On EFI engines, performance camshafts such as this one will only work with mass air induction systems. They will not work with the Explorer EEC-V EFI system.
Note 2: This camshaft has considerably higher lift than the stock cam, which may cause issues with piston-to-valve clearance. You must check your assembly carefully and modify your pistons as needed.
