    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.
    FRI Sidewinder cam, Dynatec LT Headers , BorlaCatback , 93 octane dyno tune, 333rwhp/350 ft lbs, Police Pack Oil Cooler, SRT 8 Struts and Nivo's ,Hotchkis sway bars,B Woody end links, , 275/40/20 Ventus ST's , 2017 CC Big Horn Ram 4X4 EcoDiesel. Never Trust a Fart

    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".
