towing definetly want low end, I'm thinking maybe a RV cam. Just wondering what cam(s) work with the stock CPU. Again, not to hijack, I used to have a lot of full size Jeeps, all 360 V8'S, and one of the first mods we would do is an ignition upgrade similar to what you guys are doing here. We used the same TFI upgrades same ignition system. Best money we spent was HEI to do away with the ignition control module, but the MSD coil, Large TFI cap,bump timing,plug and wire change really for the money was the best, most reliable spending of money we could do.
Guess what I'm trying to say is go for it, you will not be disappointed.

You could easily do this in a weekend if you get all your parts around. When you do a cam you always change lifters, that motor should have hydraulic flat tappet lifters. But its possible you have a roller setup, I doubt you do but Ford did put roller cams in some of the 5.0 truck motors. Call up comp cams and talk to a tech and tell him what you have and what your looking to get out of it and they would be able to get you a good setup that should work well.
