Doug- I contected him not that long ago and he said he could do still do it.
I'd be curious to know if anyone has installed them yet.
10-15hp for the money (cams/install/parts/shims/tuning/etc) was not worth it for 99% of the people out there.

Mike I think your torque figure is WAY off! lol

CODESVT had them in his car. He said they were very strong and improved the midrange torque by a fair amount. His engine also blew up although that was because of the crappy eagle rods, not the cams...

This is all i could find: These are spec for the SVT engine
Wow...that's a lot of specs! Where'd you find them?
The torque specs are exceptionally handy.

There's at least two errors I see right away:
1) Maximum engine speed 7,000 rpm <<<Should be 7,200
2) Maximum engine torque at 5,500 rpm 198 lb ft <<<Pardon me?! I'd KILL for that torque!!

Again, here's the cam specs from the earlier linked post:

"Advertised" duration is I-277° / E-265°.
I forgot to add those when I ran the numbers,
but that's mainly because it's much more accurate to list duration at a given lift.
In this case, .040". (most will list at .050")

^^^Yeah, from the SVT Brochure:
170hp @ 7,000
145 lb-ft @5,500

I believe they maeasure that differently than say we would on a dyno.
Well, the horsepower matches, but that torque up near 200 has got to be a misprint.
And, I knew you worked for Ford.
Again, thanks for all the specs.
When I get some time, I'd like to put all the torque specs in a "sticky".

It would be AWESOME if the SVT could muster nearlt 200ftlbs. That would totally cure the rediculous 1st gear problem!

I think someone is full of SHIT..... heres why...

1) On the SVT the cam position sensor is on the intake cam not the exhaust cam like on the Zetec. Without the cam position sensor your VCT will NOT function properly and the car will absolutly bake the engine from the inside out.

2) smaller cams are not going to give you more power.

Eagle rods are not crappy.. if he had problems its more than likely tune related.. you just dont bust a forged rod on a LOW power application.

What are you talking about with Cam sensors? These are REGRINDS of SVT cams, not standard non-vct Zetec stuff. The heal was reground down and the profile was changed to increase duration and lift. And his was a boosted machine- not NA.

Eagle rods seem to be OK when you put ARPs in them (is there any other way?) because they have very small connecting rod bolts. They are actually smaller than the stock SVT rod bolts if memory serves.
