Probably going to get a cobra intake soon, and the gt40 heads soon after, and was wondering which cam would be my best option to get with this set up? i am going to buy them as paychecks come, but once i get all of it then i am going to put it all on at once, most likely in june...some have said to go with a b303 cam but many also trash the 303 cams, so any help would be much appreciated...also which throttle body would best work with this set up too, or can i just buy any named brand like stack or bbk?

Probably not with that steeda cam and your ECU untuned. 300whp with GT-40 stuff is possible, but it doesn't happen just throwing it together. You're at a disadvantage stock vs. a fox because your computer has less aggressive spark tables than a fox does. The plus side is that the computer itself is more modern, has better tuning language, and with a tune will be better than a fox computer. But if you don't tune it and run a steeda cam, I wouldn't hope for over 300rwhp.

I've never run GT-40 stuff personally so I can't say from experience. I know mustank has gone 11's with those parts and he recommended an Anderson N41 cam in that thread. If that's what he ran, I would say that's a good cam to run in them.. But you'll def need to get tuned if you want to make the most of it. It looks like the steeda cam works without needing a tune on your sn car, but those aren't known for making all kinds of power. I would suggest doing more research on what works and what doesn't on your computer if you don't want to pay for a tune, because I don't know very much about them other than what I posted.

you can get gt40 heads all day and night for $400

or go to your local junkyard and pull them yourself, I think they charge like $125 here for both heads.


Also look at the trickflow stage 1 cam. but the steeda #19 is probably the best, I remember hearing a lot about it being great for the sn95's wimp cpu
