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 Cams® 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 ...

Can you use these with shorty headers and 3.73 gear, or would I be better off with a stage 1. This is a DD.

03WhiteVert

  • You will be fine with either the Stage 1 or the Stage 3. Though, if you are going to change the intake and exhaust on your car, I recommend the Comp Cams Stage 3 Xtreme Energy XE270AH Camshafts (96-04 GT), item # 30100, (http://www.americanmuscle.com/mustang-comp-cams-xe270ah.html). This will be a more aggressive cam for the mods that you have done.

I just had the 268h cams installed and now 4 months later I'm looking to get a blower will they work better on no2 or blower

Anonymous

  • If you are considering any time of forced induction or nitrous, it would be a good idea to step up to a cam that is designed for it. This is only a mild cam, and while it can hold its ground with a small amount of boost, it is a good idea to upgrade.

Do I have to modify the heads or pistons in any way to make this work properly?

Speeddemon187

  • Hi, These Cams are designed to be used with upgraded Comp Cams Valve Springs Item# 30102 ,Comp Cams Valve Spring Steel Retainers Item# 30103, and 3.23 to 3.55 rear gears. I do suggest checking piston to valve clearance to assure the pistons and valves do not make contact. Here are the links http://www.americanmuscle.com/mustang-comp-cams-springs-16.html http://www.americanmuscle.com/mustang-spring-retainer-2v.html

Do you have to remove heads to install these? I know these require springs replaced, those can be replaced with head on car, is there another reason heads have to come off?

Washy

  • For proper installation, we would highly recommend checking the piston-to-valve clearance with the Comp Cams Stage 2 Xtreme Energy XE268H Camshafts, as well as any other camshaft, and this would require the heads to be removed, however, PTV clearance can be measured in difference ways that would not require the removal of the heads.

Are these cams daily able? I want a set of nice cams without having to worry about not being able to daily my car. And would I only need the springs, retainers, and cam gears? thanks

03Stang

  • The Comp Cams Stage 2 Xtreme Energy XE268H Camshafts (96-04 GT) are good for a daily driver as they have a moderate idle. You would also need the Cam Gears, Comp Cams Beehive Valve Springs and the Comp Cams Valve Spring Retainers to work in conjunction with the install of the Comp Cams Stage 2 Xtreme Energy XE268H Camshafts.

Will a Bama custom tune work for these camshafts, or would we have to start going to a local dyno tuner instead?

progdrummer17

  • Bama can tune for aftermarket camshafts, going to a local dyno tuner is always an option as well if you were looking to get the car dialed into your specific specifications.

    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 yet but it's definitely quicker. My car has full bolt-ons and 4.10s.

    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.
