The Sound Going `Round
COMP Cams extends their Thumpr cam line to provide 4.6/5.4L Ford modular three-valve engines with an aggressive idle and increased power, all while keeping stock valvesprings. Ford built a great stock engine, but with a little help from COMP Cams it can sound and perform like a real hot rod. Like the original Thumpr cam line, the Ford camshafts have three different grind profiles for each engine, all of which will produce a rough, racy exhaust note and impressive gains in horsepower and torque. In fact, extensive testing of these new combinations has confirmed repeatable power gains of 25-plus rear wheel horsepower with no sacrifices in long-term durability. For more information, contact COMP Cams at 800-999-0853, or visit them online at www.compcams.com.
