gt40p heads

I'm getting ready to change my cam in my 98 explorer motor 5.0 and was wondering if having the exhaust valves replaced to a bigger size. Is it worth the money and time?

hard starting when warm

I switched to carb and when the truck is warmed up it is really hard to start. The only way it will start is to put the gas to the floor and crank till it starts. Is this a timing issue?
600 carb
10d before
Mix is 14.5:1 @ idle
4lbs fuel pressure

Re: v-8 swap cheap??

i did a 93 4x4 with a 3.0 3" body lift to a exployer 5.0. i got the whole exployer (98) for 1500 and dumped another 2000 in to the swap. some of the cost was not needed in the end but figure 3-5 just for a stock 5.0 swap.
