Published on 2015-05-06 If you're experiencing engine issues in your 2005-2010 3 valve Mustang, then you may need to consider replacing your cam phasers. Common symptoms of a defective cam phaser is a rough idle, hesitation, ticking, or a light knocking noise when the engine is at operating temperature.
For example, this Mustang was actually throwing a check engine light for a faulty cam phaser. There was no noise, but you could hear a light tick and feel a slight vibration at idle or cruising speeds. Damage to the cam phasers can result from ruthless driving habits, such as beating the crap out of the car every time you’re behind the wheel. Or, in this situation, a previous owner who really didn't keep track of the maintenance and went several thousand miles over a scheduled oil change.
Published on 2015-05-18 The Ford Racing Hot Rod Cams were designed with a few things in mind, to increase horsepower and torque across the entire power band and add some serious bumpty-bump to your three valve Mustang! These camshafts are engineered for naturally aspirated and supercharged applications to cover a wide variety of engine setups. It is recommended that these cams be used with long tube headers to achieve significant power gains as well as a Ford Racing Intake Manifold and Throttle Body.
These Hot Rod Cams will increase lift from the stock 11mm/0.433” to 12mm/0.472. Intake and exhaust duration will be 221/240 degrees at 50 thousandths lift with a lobe separation of 110 degrees. You can still use your factory valve springs, followers, and lash adjusters up to 6800 rpms. You’ll need a timing chain wedge tool, valve spring compressor, and new cam phaser bolts prior to install and a custom tune IS required once you do get these cams installed. Lastly, Ford Racing does include thorough instructions with all needed torque sequences and specs.
The Ford Racing Intake Manifold will offer a lightweight composite construction, high-flow runners and an open plenum design. It will fit under a stock hood and will allow gains across the entire power band! Ford Racing has tested this intake up to 2 bar pressure which makes it a perfect addition for any of you guys with forced induction! It will even feature built in Intake Manifold Runner Control (IMRC) Deletes [also called Charge Motion Runner Control CMRC delete]. All needed hardware is included along with detailed installation instructions, and like the cams, a custom tune is required.
