Ford built a great car in the 2005-2010 S197 Mustang, but with a little help from COMP Cams it can sound and perform like a real "hot rod". The Thumpr Ford 3 Valve Cam Sets for 4.6L/5.4L Modular 3 Valve Engines deliver an aggressive "thumping" exhaust idle and generous power gains in the middle & upper rpm range. These cams will turn your naturally aspirated or blower-equipped Ford 3 valve engine into a performance machine with a minimum of installation difficulty; only requiring the addition of the COMP Cams® Cam Phaser Limiter Kit (#5449) and computer tuning. The COMP Cams® Cam Phaser Limiter Kit (#5449) safely modifies the factory variable cam timing (VCT) system allowing for the use of aggressive camshaft lobe technology without sacrificing the benefits of the VCT. Extensive testing of these new camshaft combinations has confirmed repeatable power gains of 25+ rear wheel horsepower with no sacrifices in long term durability.
427-127010 - THUMPER (PHASERS AND TUNING REQUIRED)
Great idle with excellent power. Good mid-range torque & power gains above 4500 rpm. Compatible with stock valve springs, converter & gears; requires cam phaser upgrade & custom tuning.
427-127020 - MUTHA' THUMPR (PHASERS AND TUNING REQUIRED)
Very rough idle, biggest cam for stock heads. Great power above 4900 rpm. Compatible with stock valve springs, benefits from converter & gears, requires cam phaser upgrade & custom tuning.
427-127030 BIG MUTHA' THUMPR (PHASERS AND TUNING REQUIRED)
Extremely rough idle, needs stroker motor and/or ported heads. Major hp gains to 6800 rpm. Best with 3.73+ gears & 2500 stall. Compatible with stock valve springs, but requires cam phaser upgrade & custom tuning.
427-5449 - PHASER LIMITERS
These limiter plates replace the factory back-plate on the cam phaser. They have posts which extend into the cam gear's control chambers, limiting their movement to no more than 20 degrees. This gives more piston to valve clearance and lets you install bigger, more powerful camshafts with safe piston to valve clearances. While keeping up to 20 degrees of movement available, all the wide-open throttle benefits of the cam phasing are retained, since the normal retard the cams see at wide-open throttle is only around 9 degrees.
