Cam choice for 65 Ranchero---late 5.0
Have an engine at the machine shop getting rebuilt.
It is a 93ish 5.0 from a pickup.
Acquired a 5.0 HO block and crank from my local pick-n-pull that was already out
of the car, because I wanted the flywheel and balancer.
Upon taking this block apart, I found it had a nearly new roller cam in it.
E303 with .31 lift on the lobe.
Most of what I read on this cam is that it is usually installed on a FI car (Duh!), and I can't find anything about it being installed in a NA car.
I am wondering if maybe this is too much for my little "Old Blue"
I was looking to build a "Fairly Stock" HO for this thing, but a free cam is a bonus---if it will work out for me.
Looking for a nice smooth idle----100% streetable car with mild mannerisms, but will still make me grin when I "Hit It"
Apparently the cam is good from 2500-6000, and a suitable cam for the late Mustang GT with FI, but my little ride will have a carb.
That little Falcon only weighs about 5 pounds--(all over the front wheels) and has a 4-spd.
Will this cam be okay for my intended use??
