  • Aggressive 60's muscle car lopey idle
  • Increases Horsepower
  • Safe with stock valve train
  • Fits 2005-2010 3V 4.6 GT
Aggressive Sound. Give your 4.6 3-valve Mustang an aggressive lopey idle reminiscent of the classic muscle cars of the 60's with a set of Ford Racing Hot Rod Cams. No other cam manufacturer can offer the same aggressive sound and durability of these cams, in fact no one will believe it's a modular engine. Safe Upgrade. These Hot Rod Performance Camshafts were engineered by the same Ford designers of the stock cams to provide the most powerful cams available that are safe with the stock production valve train of your 2005-2010 GT. The Hot Rod Performance Cams are compatible with production springs, followers, and lash adjusters up to 6800rpm.

More Power. Ford dyno testing has shown a 50hp gain with a stock intake manifold and CNC heads at 6500 RPM. The same vehicle without the CNC heads, but with long tube headers and cold air kit installed will see an impressive 30hp gain.

Required Upgrade. To realize the full power potential that these Ford Racing Hot Rod Performance Camshafts have to offer, AmericanMuscle recommends a custom Bama tune with a Mustang Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) for proper operation.

Application. Designed as an upgrade for the 2005-10 Mustang GT 4.6L 3V engine the Ford Racing Hot Rod Performance Cams require custom calibration to achieve optimized performance.

Technical Notes. Increases lift from the stock 11mm to 12mm. Duration at .050", intake 221 degrees, exhaust 240 degrees, lobe separation 110 degrees. Long Tube Headers are not required for these cams to perform properly; but they will increase your performance gains.

Stock Valvetrain? How "safe" are these cams with the stock heads, valves, and springs?

  • They are advertised as safe. I have had mine with the stock heads, springs and valves for about 6 months without issue.

Will these cams be safe for superchargers? Will these cams be safe to work with supercharged applications, as in the Edelbrock E-Force? I wouldn't want to purchase cams, and then have to replace them again later, if at all possible to avoid.

    These cams sounds greeaat. I took my time installing them in my garage, so i took all day to do it. If your mechanically savvy and have the valve spring compressor and timing chain wedge, you should be able to handle the install yourself. My only gripe is that its hard to drive slow, the car likes to chug a lot now in the lower rpms, in first and second gear. If you have a heavy commute in your mustang, i'd say put off this product, until you get a different car to commute in. But if your like me, and dont give a damn and want your mustang to sound sick and perform better, GET EM! I have other bolt-ons including a 4.10 rear end with a 93 race tune, and get about 14 mpg, so dont expect great gas mileage, but then again, if you have a V8 Mustang...gas mileage should be the least of your concerns

    Ford did great with these cams it was very simple to do. I started this at 4pm and was finished at 7pm. If you have just the regular tools and a inch pound torque wrench and a foot pound torque wrench and you are very careful with the timing chain you can finish this very fast and then listin to your stang talk to you all day long at the stop lights. The sound is amazing!

    Old School Muscle!!!

    June 07, 2011

    First of all, do yourself a favor and buy the SCT X3 tuner because with a Bama custom tune, these Cams ROCK the house! Before the install, my performance mods were a BBK TB, FR 4:10 gears, STEEDA UP's and CAI, and JBA Longtubes and O/R pipe with Bassani exhaust . After installing the FR Cams and the custom tune, it evolved into a MONSTER!!! I also want to praise Ryan for his AMAZING customer service. Honestly one of the nicest guys I've EVER had the pleasure to do business with. I have been a Mac owner for the past couple of years and had to breakout my old PC laptop to transfer the new custom tune to my handheld. After having issues, Ryan was able to EASILY remote access my PC with a few clicks on my end, then quickly took care of business. It was pretty impressive and amazing. One word describes Ryan's service, my car, Bama products, and all my experiences with the American Muscle business....AWESOME!!!

    Love my Hot rod Cams

    January 12, 2011

    For anyone considering these cams do yourself a favor and ignore the negative feedback. I have Cold air intake, 62mm throttle body, FFRP intake manifold, axelbacks and these cams with a tune from BAMA and even in heavy traffic on the highway with 3.55 gears there is no issue with low speed driving. Plus their is a HP increase to be happy about. The sound around 2000 rpm and up not only sounds like a hot rod it also has an exotic sound to it. Bottom Line I am very happy with my purchase. 20 MPG average is what I'm getting and that's with hard driving.

    love 'em

    September 12, 2009

    More power and a bad a** sound. Some low end torque loss but nothing major. Am still able to get around fine with my stock 3.55's. MPG's have dropped by 1mpg on hwy and 2mpg in town. A custom dyno tune will make the most of these, but an e-mail tune will do. AM does not currently offer e-mail tunes for these (9/09) so expect to purchase one from an outside source. Bottom line, if you have all the supporting mods these are great. The looks you get at traffic lights are priceless!

    Breathtaking idle. Awesome daily driver manners.

    December 22, 2011

    I installed these with a buddy, took us just over 3 hours. We didnt use the special tools, just used some hose to jam the chains, and he held the cam gears up. They drive incredibly well. There is no noticeably loss on the low end, in fact, I picked up a little power everywhere, and a LOT up top. Past 4500 it just pulls and pulls and PULLS. My other mods JLT CAI GT500tb FRPP intake manifold Meziere electric water pump JBA Long tube headers/shorty H with high flow cats Flowmaster American Thunder mufflers FRPP 4.10 gears And of course, a tune on my SCT from BAMA To say it sounds awesome, is an understatement. I find myself intentionally taking ways that will have stop signs and red lights so I can stop and listen to it idle. I will caution you though, it makes your car LOUD when you first start it up, and a little louder when warmed up. Like really loud, like I am going to add in a set of resonators because its far too loud for neighbors at night and in the morning.

    05-09 Ford Racing Hot Rod Cams

    May 16, 2011

    I must say that these cams are one of the best mods I've done so far and let me tell you I've done quite a bit. I had them installed at the local Ford Dealership and took about 2 days total for install. You will need to purchase the Bama tuner in order for the cams to operate to specs. The sound of the car is amazing but for those who don't know this what is called a radical cam and it will literally shake your car at idle. So be prepared to intimidate the car next to you. Can't be more happy with this purchase.
