Deajuan this cam is not CA emission legal. Unfortunately most performance cams are not emission legal because they are designed for performance without concern for being smog legal.

That is a big cam Juan, I would highly recommend a larger fuel, intake, heads and throttle body to take advantage of the 6500 RPM capabilities of this cam. You will also need steep gears around 4.10. This cam will not work well with stock parts at all. The B303 is an excellent choice for the stock parts.

There are alot of variables that go into camshaft selection and proper valve clearance. For example, head selection plays a huge role. For example, trick flow heads have a different valve placement in the head that can only be used with matching pistons in some applications. Another factor is valve size, the standard 1.94 intake valve works with many of the aftermarket camshafts but changing to a 2.02 intake valve may cause clearance issues. Basically it comes down to your specific combination. You have to measure and verify you have the correct clearance on your motor. I had an F cam in my stock bottom end 302 with GT-40P heads and had no piston to valve issues, but your engine could have different tolerances, thinner head gasket, etc. that could cause it not to clear. the only way to find out for sure is to measure it on your application.

You'd be looking at .550" lift with the 1.72 rockers. Regardless, piston to valve clearance should be checked any time you install a camshaft.

I have a 1990 mustang gt with trick flow track heat intake, stock bottom end, vortech supercharger and upgrade fuel system(255lph and 42lb injectors). I just bought the gt40x heads and 1.6 rockers and waiting to get installed. If I go with the F cam do I need to notch or would it bolt right up? And also with these upgrades would I need to go bigger on fuel or am I still good?

Each car is going to be different so the only way to know is to actually have the cam and check ptv on it. Same with the fuel system, If you are running out of fuel with your current setup or have the injectors maxed out then yes you will have to upgrade it.

86 5.0 L Mustangs used a flat top piston design. In most cases you will have to have the pistons notched for valve clearance issues. Depending on what heads you will be running, you want to check the spring rate and verify that the lift of the cam and the spring rate will coincide together. The Lift of the F Cam with a 1.6 rocker will be 0.512".

I'm working on installing the "f" cam on a stock bottom end 302 with gt40p heads and intake. I was curious to know if anyone had any recommendations on what stall to run with this setup. I was considering somewhere around 2200-2400.
