I'm rebuilding the engine, so I'll have it apart anyway. Might as well get a good cam in there to go with the new heads and rockers.

Ported and polished E7's w/ 1.7 roller rockers, carb'd.

Whatcha think?

LMAO @ the Bcam!!

for once and for all, do not use that piece of shit... it is a lazy-ramped POS that was designed to be used with stock valve springs... that's why it's got turtle nuts for lift and too much seat duration. it's JUNK!

my wagon went 12.60's with cleaned up E7's, E303, and stock rockers... ('course, it went 11.90's with cleaned up GT40's and a B303, but it was a lot lighter and was a way different car at the time. I'm here to tell ya, the Bcam is a POS!!)

my little bro's car shagged ass w/ cleaned up E7's, F303, and stock rockers...

I would run something small like an E303 or a TFS stage 1 w/ the 1.7's.

what's the rest of your combo look like?

did you see where I said my car went 11.90's NA with a Bcam? and that was with 1.6's...

it's still a fuckin' POS... I'd go so far as to say "hella POS" :p

Forged pistons
Edelbrock 600cfm carb -I have a feeling I'm going to need to go bigger/Holley with this.
Edelbrock RPM manifold
Hedman 88400 shorty headers (to clear the clutch cable conversion)
Am I forgetting anything?

Edit:
Is this the TFS Stage 1?
http://store.summitracing.com/defau...earchinresults=false&N=0&target=egnsearch.asp

I haven't found anywhere that lists the cams as "stage 1" or "stage 2", etc..

Forrest,

What is your take on the 2031?
can't remember the specs offhand, but I believe that's the cam Scott (White Trash Wagon) is running in his fairmont...

untouched GT40-P heads, Weiand Stealth, 650 double pumper, 2031 cam with 1.6's (it's designed for 1.7's) and FMS shorties. he put down 299rwhp.

good cam if you can find a good deal on one.

Yeah, its made for the 1.7's.

I have untouched GT40's, upper/lower, shorties and an AOD. I was looking for something that would work with the AOD and not cause any bucking.

I had a 2031 back in the day, but it was on a 5 speed and there I didnt have to worry about the bucking.

I would be happy with 235hp right now...

TFS 1 is part number: TFS-51402000

good lookin' ride. you putting a T5 in it?

please put an x-pipe and chambered mufflers on it! :D
Sweet, that's the one.

Thanks man. Yeah, I'm putting a T5 in it. Should be more fun than the C4 and allow for some real gears. I'll probably just run straight pipes and keep the "turbo" muffs for now while I save my pennies for a decent rear end. I'll keep your X/chambers plan in mind though. ;)
