Roller Cam (CompCam)

I have been having issues with the cam i ordered being back ordered. Well it finally came in the mail today and it is the wrong part # from the one that i ordered. Im looking to put a roller cam into a 302. went with a kit ive seen on a few different sites that has a .480" lift. would like to keep that lift height. also would like the kit simply because it makes it easier and cheaper than buying the lifters, cam, and retainer individually. Ive been going through compcam. anyone have any other recommendations for cam companies or roller cam options?

If you build it, they will come

What cam did you get and what cam did you want? Very little information here for people to answer your question.

Ed Curtis at Flowtech Induction, tell him what you want and that's what you will get. His custom cams aren't much more than off the shelf ones and its matched to make the most of your combo and what you plan on doing with it. He did my heads and cam on my 351W, 110% satsfied.

I've never run this cam but the specs are stout! Super short duration with a ton of lift should give you good idle and mid range torque with top end too. I would be very cautious about your heads and springs with this cam. With .530 lift you are going to need springs and your rockers may run out of slot and bind. Also pressed in studs may start to walk if the spring pressure is too high.

My wife and my Bronco are not friends...

There is a kit that includes the correct springs. I had screw in studs, so I canít speak for pressed in and any issues it may cause with them. Changing to that cam and spring setup really made my 5.0l come alive, and have a fantastic idle with EFI.

Have this cam in my dads fox body LTD, which is a 331 stroker,
but I wanted a torquey street cam and this thing delivers.
I did use 1.7 rockers, as I wanted rollers and figured why not (on ratio).

Not sure if they sell it as a kit, but also not sure why you would need more than stock lifters.
I just went with new factory ford roller lifters since this was new motor from the ground up,
but not sure you even need new one's if nothing wrong with your stockers.

As mentioned earlier...make sure your valve train assembly can handle large lift cams... hate to start it up and drop a valve thru that brand new piston...

Stock geometry is limited to lift w/o bind. I run .619" lift at .050 with 1.65 rockers but its designed for it.
Hope this helps.

https://www.jegs.com/i/COMP-Cams/249...r+Confirmation is the original part that i ordered. Requires me to drill and tap 2 holes for the lifter retainer and, will be quite a bit more to upgrade to linked lifters. im trying to contact ed curtis via email, just waiting to hear back. im not the engine guy by any means, so im just reaching out for ideas.

If you build it, they will come
