Default frpp cams, are they worth it or not??

im thinkin of buyin a frpp b303 cam for my ride, but i've heard that they are shitty, is it true, if yea then what cam would be better that kinda matches the specs, most important the lift. if the lift is too big, ex: .530 or more, would it smack the piston head...wicked bros help me out on this one...

sabotaje you should go the e303 thats a good cam for a stock bottom end motor, clears everything no problems and sounds good too.......

Default E303

If you are looking to get a cam that you can still pass smog the E303 is the cam to get it has a good idle, but if you dont care for the Smog stuff maybe a F303 will sound even better .

if your on stock heads,pretty much any off the shelf cam will work without any valve to piston issues.If your running a 2.02 inline head then you must keep lift under .470 and even there you need to check it,if your running a 1.94 intake valve on a inline head .520 and smaller will clear,but again would check it,and if your running a trick flow twisted wedge 2.02 .520 and down will clear.

because most off the shelf 302 5.0 cams are all basically the same,and that being said the rule of thumb for the ots cams is what i posted above,but its always a good idea to check them.

And he said nothing about a custom ground cam,he talked about ford letter cams and other off the sheflf stock stlye replacement cams.

As i said in my post above its always a good idea to check valve to piston,i use the test spring and dial indicator method.

I ran the f cam in mine with 1.7 rockers which brings the lift to .544! I was running gt40 cast iron heads with the stock 1.84s and never had a problem!
