    Yes, but it meets the OP's criteria.

    But again with a cam that small what's the point? Go get a good 93oct tune, an good aftermarket air intake and headers and you will gain more power without cracking into the engine. and for less money.

    My Magnum has 376,000 miles, most with a FRI Sidewinder with MDS. The cam, actually makes MDS work a lot better. Stock, back in 2005, it dynoed 262 rwhp. With LT headers, Borla, Air Hammer, gutted cats, sidewinder and a 93 octane tune= 333 rwhp/350 ft-lbs tq. Not earth shattering, but a nice (baby) gain on a Mustang chassis dyno.

    Why shoot yourself in the foot? It’s a lot of work to get into the cam, get a good set of new lifters for $300-$400, almost every cam available highly recommends new valve springs. You’ll really hate yourself rebuilding it again after an old stock spring breaks and adds some extra piston ventilation. Pay to play now instead of trying to cheat the system. Like you said, the cars have been out for 14 years, we know what works and what fails.

    Like stated above, don't cut corners. If you're already going to tear into the motor, might as well replace those valve springs. Especially if you increase lift above stock. Over time, those springs will give and you'll be without a car. In my honest opinion, I like to get the car to breath better...exhaust, CAI, etc. Good luck with you decision.

    Plenty of guys with dyno proven results of 20+ hp on just a good 3rd party tune alone.

    Valve springs do not "give out".

    I used SRT8 springs and push rods. I think my Magnum was around the 35,000 mile mark when installed. They were cheap. Lasted just fine. Probably the stock ones would have been fine. If I were putting a higher lift cam in a SRT8, certainly, that would be the first thing.

    My cam is mid, eagle lifters, eagle intake, headers, high flow cats and .30 milled heads with SRT springs and pushrods...dyno on mustang dyno at 383 with a bit lean custom tune.
    When I had MDS enabled, it stayed on almost to a stop and was on constantly on highway. Was a bit annoying, vibration at low RPM mainly, so I just turned it off. Johan swore it wouldn't be on at low speed but it did and the vibration was too much.
    So far been about 75k with all and going strong

    The first thing I did when I had my 300c was disconnect that MDS system as it gunks up the motor if you ask me when it is running an extended period of time cylinders turned off plus this is a luxury muscle car who wants it to ever run on less than 8...not me if I am looking for gas mileage I would buy a little **** box lol. Also yes just changing the cam is usually not going to work as valve springs and pushrod etc need to be changed and a new DYNO tune will be in order...best bet consult a speed shop.
