    FRPP Hot Rod Cams

    FYI................................... Please refer to pg 1, post #17 in this thread then watch this YouTube video I just put together to go along w\ this: After this I'll digress from any further conversations concerning off idle, low RPM TQ loss using a WOT dyno sheet evaluating a Ford 4.6L...

    FRPP Hot Rod Cams

    Ok then that makes sense..........so it would seem that these Ford Hot Rod cams are a very popular cam choice for these 4.6L V8's in Germany thus exist in enough volume to have a lower price as well as availability. I can relate to how you feel..........................

    FRPP Hot Rod Cams

    Here is a YouTube video of this guy's 2005 GT street\race car fitted w\ an OEM SBE 4.6L 3V V8 running a set of these FRPP Hot Rod cams w\ the usual complement of engine mods (CAI, mildly port-matched OEM IM w\ CMCV's removed, LTH's & matching midpipe thru a set of Pypes M80 mid mounted...

    FRPP Hot Rod Cams

    GriffX, that would be hard for me to say w\ any integrity...........will greatly depend on the tuner doing the tuning......... From what I'm seeing\learning from my own tuning.......it is very possible to get these FRPP Hot Rod cams to behave nice at low RPM operations, but if you really want...

    FRPP Hot Rod Cams

    FYI......................... For context, please refer to posts #47 & #50 in this thread............... Here are some pictures of my 4.6L 3V V8's spark advance timing use I gathered from my HPTuners VCM Scanner's Spark Advance graph that I set up to use the 21* BTDC theoretical optimum max...

    FRPP Hot Rod Cams

    FYI........................ Here is a YouTube video of an interview w\ Billy Godbold @ Comp Cams that should clear the air on perspective as to why Ford gave the camshaft .006" lift adv dur seat-to-seat cam timing of both the OEM cams & the FRPP Hot Rod cams for tuning optimizing purposes using...

    Limp mode after throttle body was taken off!!!

    OP, is this the throttle body you're referring to? If so, this is the Ford 60mm TB that came w\ all '99-'07 E-series & F-series trucks\vans\RV's that were equipped w\ a 6.8L Triton V10 engine as well as all '07-'12 MY GT500's...........thus it will need an adapter to fit a '05-'10 MY GT IM &...

    FRPP Hot Rod Cams

    Exactly..................speaking on this............... Most have been conditioned to think these increase HP.........which is not exactly true as HP is calc'd from the exerted TQ amount that can carry over time & distance (or RPM's). Most also don't understand that a chassis dyno is the wrong...

    FRPP Hot Rod Cams

    FYI......................all the dyno runs\sheet results of my car were made w\ a Ford Performance Aluminum 1-Piece Driveshaft installed........so going by your given numbers for driveline parasitic loss this really makes a 1-piece aluminum driveshaft usage vs the OEM 2-piece driveshaft design...

    FRPP Hot Rod Cams

    FYI.......................... Well, I found out that my WOT testing section (section of road access to a major gas processing plant on the Res that I knew would get cleared sooner or later) @ NAPI International Raceway & Testing Facility is now back in service so I went out yesterday &...

    FRPP Hot Rod Cams

    Yes GriffX, they're removed thus aren't in the '08 MY OEM IM's intake runners (I'm using Steeda CMDP's)......been removed for quite some time (last time I had operational CMCV's on my engine was sometime in mid 2018 when I pulled my '09 GT's perfectly fully functional OEM IM & replaced it w\ the...

    FRPP Hot Rod Cams

    FYI........................... Disclaimer.........remember all this has to do w\ VCT usage...............fixed cam-in-block designs are set in full by the cam manuf's & usually have to pick their poison to either optimize off idle low RPM & part throttle HP\TQ w\ WOT HP\TQ dropoff or...

    Newbie with a Nightmare Scenario

    1st off, glad that part got you out of a bind. 2nd part, glad you figured out how to install these types of connectors into this thermoplastic fuel line......I usually use heated water to heat this type of line up as the heat application, though somewhat slower, is more uniform. As it cools off...

    FRPP Hot Rod Cams

    Well then JC SSP, I don't have to say anything as from an old proverb............"it takes real to discern real"...............meaning that you already know & understand exactly what all of this means when properly applied using the DEPS version of VCT that these 3V's are using........as it is...

    FRPP Hot Rod Cams

    FYI........................... Here are some pictures of my latest datalog recorded today showing this SO ECU applying accel lead-in spark advance timing then reverting back to the established base BKT\MBT Spark Advance timing curve spacing during a mini 4th gear rolling WOT hit that lasted for...

    Oil pump failure

    Thanks for these pictures! I know what I'm gonna type will be somewhat controversial, but this indicates to me that Ford realized they made a mistake w\ the 3V's.......the plastic chain tensioner design has always felt to me to have been more of a cost saving thing far more than an operational...

    Limp mode after throttle body was taken off!!!

    Don't take this the wrong way.......but as for this statement......1.) if what you're implying is if you install a different TB from the 1 currently installed & the replacement is the exact same sized part, then this is correct since the replacement part's PTA\EA effective area hasn't changed...

    FRPP Hot Rod Cams

    FYI........................... On p2, post #36 I posted some data of where I have gotten to w\ my car's tuning in relation to what is upcoming when I do the timing refresh\FRPP Hot Rod cam install & tune................ Well, here is some more data I'm providing below that will come into use...

    FRPP Hot Rod Cams

    Yes I'm aware that the old 60's era engines were all built using larger oil bearing clearance specs back in the day due to using mostly dino-based single viscosity engine oils, which required\allowed the usage of higher oil viscosities when the engine bearings were new\newish........also as I've...

    Pinion seal replacement

    Agree w\ this...................is why I only will use National Oil Seals 3604 Ford 8.8" pinion seals for replacements\builds as these are rated for 400*F+ operation........the front pinion bearing is THE hottest running bearing in this axle & this seal is the highest temp rated pinion seal out...

    Oil pump failure

    If this is true, then this info seals the deal for me concerning this 3V............I'll be going w\ the 4.6L 2V iron tensioners myself (already have them in hand). I'll find out if all this is real or a red herring...............
