camshaft ????

Hey guys. I'm trying to find a camshaft for my 7.3. Every search I do comes back with about 99% camshaft position senor bad and 1% about how you don't need a performance cam. Does anyone know if this camshaft is the same as the powerstroke? Seems like somewhere I remember reading that the t444e had a different grind for more torque. I have to have a camshaft because mine is flaking. 7.3L FORD F250 F350 POWERSTROKE DIESEL ENGINE CAMSHAFT | eBay


2001 F350 with 213,000 miles and rolling strong
but now it has 221,000 miles and is dead from low
compression #4-250psi #7-280psi
Build Underway-Block, heads, and rotating assembly at the machine shop. Purchased Forged rods, head studs, OEM Ford Overhaul Kit, Beans donut gaskets, rebuilt my turbo with all new parts and WW, and misc.
DP Injectors and custom chip coming soon.

So let me get this right. You dont need the position sensor (which should be free from Ford due to recall)

And you are looking for a performance cam? I know cams, well, I know gas cams. So if you are looking for a performance cam, you will really need a custom grind due to the fact your motor is a turbo motor and diesel. I can get into details but it might not be nessisary if that isnt what you are going after.

Bump! No one has a camshaft for a 7.3 Powerstroke or knows where to find one except ford? This thing must be extinct.

Call Summit, they will get a cam for you, even if they dont list it.

A cammed 7.3. Now there's an interesting notion. I've cammed gassers, and I'm about to cam my TDI, but a cammed 7.3 would certainly be interesting.... I wonder what kind of numbers could be put down with a cam on this thing. I'd love to have an increase in hp/tq/curve/mpg. I bet it would be a bastard swapping cams on this thing though.

Well from the OP's post I think he just needs a factory replacement... anyway that'd be a nasty sounding 7.3 lol.

Are you wanting just an OEM cam or a performance cam? I'm assuming from your sig your truck is mostly stock so you are looking for a stock one is so email Ryan@partingoutdieselmotors.com he is in GA and buys a LOT of engines and then tears em down and parts them out and would probably have one in good shape you could use... If you are looking for a performance cam they really aren't beneficial unless you have a good bit of mods done but contact diesel innovations they have custom regrind cams there's a few other companies that do it as well but it's slips my mind at the time

I know Matt@Gearhead has a couple different cams he offers. And i don't think the prices are to bad on em.
