Hey guys, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is my review of these SR Performance coilover caster camber plates, available for all 1979 to 2004 Mustangs. So if you have SR Performance coilovers in your Foxbody SN95 or New Edge, then you're going to be looking at running these caster camber plates with your new coilovers. These are only going to work on cars that have these specific coilovers. You can't run these with another set of coilovers. If you're going to be running coilovers, you really need to have a set of caster camber plates as well, so you can keep your alignment in spec and give yourself a little bit more adjustability. I see it as, you're already investing in a set of coilovers, so why not do it right? Not to mention, not picking up a set of caster camber plates with your new coilovers is almost counter intuitive since you'll be taking away a lot of the adjustability and the ability to fully customize your setup, which is the whole point of coilovers. I like that SR Performance has completed their coilover package with these plates here, and I like that, as usual, this set is hitting that value price point at just under $150. Now I do have these on my personal Foxbody, and one of the downsides, for me anyway, is that these are a little bit noisy. I get clunking over a lot of bumps, even smaller bumps, and I'm not really too fond of that, but it may not bother you. Sometimes you're willing to sacrifice a little of the nicer elements to come in under your budget. If you don't have a budget, then I'd say that you can probably find a nicer set of plates if you want to go with a different coilover. Installing these plates is a little time-consuming even though they are a direct bolt-on that requires no drilling or cutting, and install time could be longer if you're putting these on at the same time as you're installing your coilovers, which I hope you are. But you're probably looking at a few hours here, and I'll call this a two on our scale. And just remember that you should take your car for an alignment after the install, especially if you're slapping on those coilovers as well. What I would do here is install the plates and try to dial them in as close as I can to the settings that I'm looking for, and then take the car to be professionally aligned. So if you're installing a set of SR Performance coilovers on your Mustang, then you should really pick up a set of these caster camber plates as well. These are coming in at a good price point, and while they may be a little noisy, they're still fully functional and will get the job done correctly for you. I'm Stephanie, and I'll see you next time, right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Mild Street Performance Cam. If you're looking to get more power out of your SOHC 4.6L then consider a set of Comp Cams XE268H Camshafts. They will give you good low to mid-range power gains in both horsepower and torque.

Adjustable Cam Gears. Maximize the power from your new camshafts with a set of Adjustable Cam Gears, which will allow you the ability to fine tune your camshaft timing - a critical necessity when doing mods that can change your camshaft-to-crankshaft centerline position. Please see drop down option above.

Application. This SOHC Camshaft is designed for 1996-2004 4.6L two valve V8 Mustangs with 3.23 to 3.55 rear gears and will work with the factory tune.

Technical Note. Comp Cams are designed for modified cars that include upgraded valve springs for clearance related issues. It is recommended to use COMP CamsĀ® 26113 Valve Springs for proper fitment, see drop down option above. Combine the valve springs with a new set of valve spring steel retainers to handle the higher pressures developed by the springs.

Fitment: 1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 Details

Great Idle, Good Street Manners

Dropped these in my 2001 Mustang GT. I did have PTV contact. It did not cause damage but I do recommend degreeing them in and checking PTV clearance. Idle is great, pulls hard to 5500 RPM. No dyno tune ...

  • The Comp Cams Valve Springs Beehive, item 30102 and the Comp Cams Valve Spring Steel Retainers, item 30103 would be all the is required for a proper installation. http://www.americanmuscle.com/mustang-comp-cams-springs-16.html http://www.americanmuscle.com/mustang-spring-retainer-2v.html

Is it ok that I have 308 gears and do I need a stall converter for automatic transmission and later if I want 410 gears will they work with cam

  • When installing the Comp Cams Stage 2 Xtreme Energy XE268H Camshafts we recommend a 3.73 - 4.10rear gear ratio to complement the performance characteristics of the camshaft. A stall converter is not required, but would provide several performance benefits.

  • Hello! The Comp Cams Valve Spring Steel Retainers are highly recommended to handle the pressure developed by the new springs.

Do these affect gas mileage at all?

  • The Comp Cams Stage 2 Xtreme Energy XE268H Camshafts are not tested for their affect on fuel economy, however, camshaft upgrades are known to decrease fuel economy.

Can these cams be used with nitrous?

  • We recommend a more aggressive cam when running nitrous. This cam is not much larger than stock.

    AshleyK

On a 2000 GT I've heard the stock cam gears are pressed on the stock cams. Is this correct? And if so can the stock cam gears be pressed onto the aftermarket cams as well?

  • If you have the pressed on cam gears, you would need to switch over to the bolt on cam gears to use these Comp Cams Stage 2 Xtreme Energy XE268H Camshafts.

    Sounds Sweet!

    I purchased these cams for my 00 GT. Dyno gains were around 30 rwhp and 30 rwtq. The sound is amazing, gives my stang that old muscle car sound. I paired these with a set of comp cam beehive springs, retainers and BBK long tube headers. Was pricey to have shop install, but worth it for sound and future power adders.

    Best Mod For My Mustang

    I had ordered the Comp Cams Stage 2 Xtreme Energy Camshafts for my 2000 Mustang GT. After the installation of the cams and the related parts, my pony sounded like a beast. The power of my Mustang will have you pulling back in the seat. This is one of the best investments for my mustang.
