No cams are just drop in. You will probably have to adjust the valve lash.

IMO: You might want to consider FR Stg.2’s, has much better performance, uses stock valve train & on sale for around $165.00. And according to Ray at McNews...The best cams he has ever tested for a Zetec.

it took me about 2hrs to change my cams. you wont know what size buckets you need untill you put the new cams in and check the valve lash.

Before I would put new cams in I would check to make sure the new cams are within specs.
