I am putting an EFI 5.0 engine in my 69 Coupe out of a 77 LTD C/V & I want to change the cam, do I have to use a cam specific the an EFI engine? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Mike.

First off they didn't have EFI in 77 so I assume you mean 87. You can use any cam for a 5.0L Computer controlled roller motor but it will be for a HO engine. That sounds like it would not be an HO engine. You would have to change to a 351w firing order and change the wires around in the injector harness to that firing order, and use an HO computer. If you not useing the injection you can use any 5.0L roller cam but you will still have a 351w firing order.RAY
