Hi Guys, im new to this forum so first let me introduce myself. I live in the Netherlands and got an 72 Mustang Grandé with an 302/FMX auto.
Now my question is, I've rebuild the engine with Flattop pistons (1-10.5 c.r.), heads completely revised and ported ,Holly 600cfm with and Weiand stealth dualplane, Mallory unilite ignition, headers to 40-series flowmasters. Now the engine has got an Ford motorsports cam M-6250-A312. And my opinion is that is pulls like crazy but only on higher revs from 2500 on. Will an other cam from Competition Cams (nostalgia 31-670-4 ) make a difference on more torque in the bottom area???. The rear-xle is standard with 1-3.00 settings and 275-60-15 tyres. Because it will hardly burn , only out of corners on high revs.

thanx in advance

Welcome to M&M!
Look at the ID's: a Dutchman, an Aussie, and a Yankee

I run the Comp 270S, it's a great street cam , but it too starts to come in hard <2500 rpm, and that's in a stroker.
Got the specs on that Motorsport cam handy?

I would think that if you don,t want to start messing with the motor, gear the car. get yourself a set of 3.55 or 3.73 this will wake you up out of the hole, the problem being wheel spin. Good luck and welcome to M&M

Welcome to M&M.

I agree with John. I think it needs more gear. Those tall gears kill any low end torque the motor might be making now. A set of 3.55s or 3.73s will increase low end throttle response more than any motor mod you can make at this time.

Before you change anything, did you convert the rocker studs to the screw in adjustable type wil polylocks, or do you still have the factory bottleneck press in studs? If you have no low end torque, you may want to re-adjust your valvetrain as you may have too much lifter pre-load, especially with the factory setup.
