Was wondering if anyone had ever run a Ford B cam in a 4V 302? What were your impressions of the cam...idle characteristics, power gains, etc? Thanks...

The "B" cam is for the 302 Roller cam engine (5.0), my opinion is there are better cams available. There
has been alot of cam research done after the B303 was designed. A call to comp cams with your specs
and desired power range would probably get you a better cam. It has a mildly lopey idle with power
coming on after 2500rpm, power pettered out after about 5000rpm.

My new motor has the F303, which is a little lopier (is that a word?) than the B303. I'll let ya'll know how it runs in a week or so.

I have the B303 cam in my 5.0L, it is somewhat lopey. If I buy a new starter today I might be able to record the sound of the engine and post it somewhere.
I also have 2.79 gears and the cam is not happy with them. Higher RPM is real nice though.
