they a guy supposed to be coming later today to possibly buy my towncar, if he does, iv have money to buy the parts i need, if not, ill scrape by until i can fix it.
Make sure the idle fuel pressure is 5.5PSI or less.
Get a fuel pressure regulator if nessessary.

Then you don;t want a big honkin cam in it.
Get a cam that suites matches what you are trying to do there.
Much cheaper than new torque converters etc.
