PI cam swap complete

Well needless to say, that tool from anderson ford motorsport worked flawlessly..

never had to pull the timing cover or anything, just a second person is kinda handy at times.

everything went smooth except for the part some left out to tell me, the bolts for the pi cams are different size than the npi cams. so i orderd those from a stealership 15 bucks later for 2 bolts and 2 washers.

i just have to finish putting those bolts in tonight, then putting the valve covers back on and putting a few small things back.

ill let you know how she runs.

well finally got home tonight, i swear the hardest part about that whole thing is getting on and off the valve covers...

like i mentioned in the fist post, the tool from anderson worked perfect, never had to remove the timing cover, or anything. i think it was well worth the 30 bucks.

as far as the car feels, it no longer feels like it has a short powerband from like 3500-4800 like it used to, now it feels like it pulls strong throughout all rpm's

it could be my imagination but who knows..

do you have pi intake on it or still the npi?

if still npi just top it off with pi intake and 75mm tb and you'll be sleeping at night with a grin on your face.
