The profile is different so the valves open more and longer on the higher stage. Although, I called FC about a couple things and they said that the stage 1 and 2 crower exhaust camshaft for the focus have identical profiles. The zetec engine seems to react well with a large intake cam and a smaller exhaust. On their project turbo focus, they are using stage 3 intake cam and stock exhaust cam and i think they are up to 490 hp or something right now. They dyno tested the [censored] and that was the best combination that they came up with.Is there a way to actually tell what stage cam is?
Ult - where the [censored] have you been man????Yeah, if you get the cams, i recommend a throttle body with an adjustable stop screw. I have the FC 65mm. You will probably need to adjust it. It will help smooth your idle out. Mine was idling very rough and kept stopping. It still lopes, but it sounds ok.
EggYolkI noticed that on the pics of the newest gen FCTB there was a little something different on the idle control screw - a spring! is this to say that it's now just plug n' play? whereby I just put it in and don't have to spend days trying to figure out the right adjustment to get the thing to idle right and avoid a CEL...
I searched, but found nothing in the way of this change other then a few pics of the newer design.
I have a '01 mtx, btw...
UltI think I know who I'm going to pass this answer to...
EggYolkright on schedule...
...DO NOT adjust your idle screw, the ecu will only compensate for it. return it back to its original position
Other Examples:Like clockwork Ult - I build em up, you knock em down
wow,,,,im sensing hostilitythe timing is fine. If it wasnt, i would have a lot more problems than a rough idle. Dont know why you did not get problem i did and i dont really care. Why should i? its not my car. Adjusting it was the only thing that smoothed out my idle. It worked fine and i am happy with it, even though you may not be.
was offering advice and if you disagree with me, then i dont know why you should expect me to automatically listen to whatever you say. If you still disagree with me, then go cry to mommy about it, because i dont care.
Weren't you the guy who had that picture in his signature? Didn't people whine about it and you changed it? Hmmm...seems like you do care when people disagree with you...If you still disagree with me, then go cry to mommy about it, because i dont care.
