For additional insurance, we also added a set of ARP head studs, which are stronger and offer better thread overlap than factory bolts, which helps prevent pulling threads out of a used block. With nitrous, this is easily a midsecond ride. Stay informed with our Newsletter Sign Up Now. The hardest part of swapping the cam was just getting the timing cover off and back on again.
Once again we employed a stroker teests, but this one came in the form of a Dart SHP stroker assembly. By contrast, either of the two combinations listed here would be ideal daily drivers. The final stroker assembly was anotherbut one dedicated as a normally aspirated combination.
Conclusions In review, we rescued a used 5. Even with relatively small valve sizes of 1.
Late-model hydraulic roller 5. The stock GT40P springs must be upgraded when going to a longer-duration cam. The longer duration created a slight loss of torque below 3, rpm compared to both previous cams, but beyond that mild loss of 5.0l, the bigger Voodo out-powered its smaller cousin, cranking out a peak torque of lb-ft at 4, a gain of 7 lb-ft over Test 2 and charging to a peak horsepower of at 6, rpm.

Ford 5.0L Engine Performance Packages – Packaged Performance
Within a few hours of his discovery, the engine was sitting in the 5.0p of his truck on its way to a new home. In addition, the cam timing was designed for torque, with duration somewhere around degrees at 0. Remember, there really is no replacement, especially when it fits conveniently in the same physical package as the stock While the heads were off getting a massage, we turned our attention to the cam timing.
First off, our stock 5. The engine was in test good condition considering its mileage—the factory crosshatch was still evident on the testss walls. Since the power output of any combination is a function of the major components and the displacement, an easy way to improve power without resorting to decreased driveability is to add cubes. Of course the Scat crank, rods, and JE pistons were a big part of the equation, but the EFI produced hp at 6, rpm and lb-ft of torque at 4, rpm.

The multiple-layer steel construction allows the gasket to conform to movement between the cylinder head and block while maintaining a good seal. Slover machined the heads for screw-in studs and guideplates since the original configuration used a net lash system that was just too weak.
This required removal of the accessories, and installation of the Meziere electric water pump. To illustrate possible gains, we first had to test a stock 5. We also added a veteran Ford magnetic pickup distributor and used it to drive an MSD ignition system. 5.0p
5 Litre Ford Dyno Tests : Richard Holdener :
For this reason we’ve provided you with multiple dyno-verified 5. The question was whether we wanted a torquey small-block or a more cammed-up rpm engine forr boost peak tesrs.
As you might expect with more duration, the idle quality dropped significantly but was still able to make If the dog bones are installed upside-down, this could cause massive cam damage if the lifters are allowed to spin. Changing cams in the 5.
When we added timing, it lost power. If you are plan to swap this 5. To properly illustrate the power tesys offered by the modified versions, we first had to dyno test a stock 5.
This one added another 10 degrees of duration over the smaller Voodoo cam, along with foed. Given that a modern Coyote motor makes twice that much horsepower, it is hard to believe that this was considered powerful back in the day.
Typical of carbureted applications, the produced slightly more peak power and less torque than the EFI version, with peaks of hp and lb-ft. The tight combustion chamber only wanted 34 degrees of timing for best power. This test went so well that we were eager to see what the slightly bigger cam would do.
Speculating about horsepower is a time-honored tradition. The plate is the same one used in larger kits. Southfield, MI http: The rest went very smoothly, and we reused the stock lifters and suffered no ulcers worrying about breaking in the cam.
