Is it ok to buy some used PI cams to put on my t-bird or wait till I have enough to get new ones? Probably could get them cheap off a mustang board. When/if I do it I also plan on replacing the timing chains etc. What do you guys think? Also are there differences between the years?

My cams were used.
All of the '99-up cams are the same spec whether they were in a truck,car,van,SUV,whatever.

JL, did you feel a big difference when you put your cams in? Cause I plan on puting 96 heads on with PI cams and if there isn't that big of a difference, I'll just wait to get them P&Ped.

Thanks. Now what about the intake? Should I keep me aluminum one or go to the newer plastic one?
You'll have to decide on how much money you wanna spend.The plastic intake has a slight advantage.

JL, how much did you pay for your cams if you dont mind me asking? I found a guy that will sell me his for $150 shipped.

Jim
$150 is a fair price.

What would the advantage be? 1-2 hp?
Don't honestly know..and I won't speculate on the net about how much it is.

Ok. I think I heard somewhere that the 15 lbs of tourqe differenct between 94/95 and 96/97 was in the manifold.
That statement was made before JL posted the picture with the difference between the 94/95 and the 96/97 heads.
