I have a 99 gt auto with bbk shorty headers, bbk cai, bbk o/r x, magnapack exhaust, bbk udp, sct livewire tuner, 4.10 gears, bbk tb, accufab upper plenum, etc. I am thinking about keeping my car N/A and would like to know what cams would be a good fit for my setup. The car puts down like 245 to the wheels and I guess my overall goal would be to make over 300rwhp. Any advice would be great.

I have shorty headers and somebody told me that I won't get a big gain with those on and that I should get longtubes instead. Is there any truth to that or was it bad info?

i think alot of people like the hitech cams. I have heard many good things about the MPH cams that tim has and they sound BADASS! go to youtube and listen to some vids of the cars loping too when you narrow your decision down.

Well 300 rwhp isn't going to happen for us man. Us autos always fall about 10-15 rwhp short. Only way is to have your heads worked on. 280-290 is more realistic.

Hey was your '01 an automatic? Also, did you have any dyno numbers from the cams alone?

Also, I meant I would eventually like to get over 300rwhp and I know that cams alone won't do it. I was eventually thinking tfs heads to help me get over the 300 mark.

If your going to keep your motor stock I say go with Hi Tech cams.

If your going to rebuild your engine which I believe I saw in another post. Get custom cams with trick flow heads.
Or you can do what Im doing already found a shop that has done the swap many times is swapping a 5.4L over which I will be staying N/A and looking to get around 350rwhp if not more. Got stage 2 comp cams from the shop ready as well my heads port and polished with new valves.

How much do you want for the Livernois heads?

Is there anything wrong with them?

How many miles are on them?

Nevermind, I see they have 400 miles on them.

Why are they being sold if they only have 400 miles on them?
