Features & Details

  • Hot Street Cam
  • More Horsepower and Torque
  • Rough Idle
  • For 1996-2004 GT and Bullitt Mustangs
Hot Street Cam. If you're looking to get more power out of your SOHC 4.6L then consider a set of Comp Cams XE274H Camshafts. They will give you great mid-range power gains in both horsepower and torque.

Rough Idle. If you love the sound of a rough idle, you won't be disappointed by this cam. Like the muscle cars of yesteryear, this cam yields a sound that will make lesser cars clear a path out of your way at lights.

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 3.55 or 3.73 rear gears and a 2000 plus stall speed converter on automatic transmissions. Recommended for use with 4.6 two valve V8 mustangs with intake, exhaust, custom tuned computer, and valve spring upgrades.

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

The lope and roughness of these cams is ridiculous. I love the sound and have no drivability issues. Daily drive the car with no problems. Picked up an extra 30 or so horses also. The power curve starts ...

I have 4.10 gears 30lb injectors, typhoon intake, cold air kit, underdrives, and fuel rails. Will these cams be ok for me? or go with stage 3

ford4life

  • I would run the stage 3- The lift is a little higher on the stage 3 (allowing more flow) while not being too lumpy that you regret it in the future- The duration is not as high, but again you will get the result I think you are looking for without getting too annoying. With the profile on the stage 3 set, you could still add forced induction in the future. The stage 3 set would be my personal choice.

I have an 04 GT with Accufab 75mm throttle body , 42lb injectors, Vortech v2 with 13lbs, and many other mods. Will these work or do I need to upgrade? I'm still new to working on cars.

  • Upgrading your stock cams is a great idea, especially on a forced induction application. The main reason someone would want to change cams is to reduce valve over lap. (I,e. the exhaust valve is still closing as the intake valve is opening.) This results in the fresh air/fuel mixture partially escaping out the closing exhaust valve. If you factor in boosted applications this is especially undesirable as your boost/fuel is escaping right out the exhaust. Generally speaking, a mark of a good blower application cam would be anything with a 114 degree or better lobe separation angle (LSA). If your motor is still equipped with a stock bottom end (dish pistons with no valve relief's) then I would recommend staying with http://www.americanmuscle.com/comp-cams-xe268h.html. This will greatly eliminate the chances of having piston to valve contact (PTV). As well as a noticeable idle and performance improvement.

I have the following bolt on parts and work done on my 99 Mustang GT: Bama iTsx Tuner BBK Cold Air Intake BBK 78mm throttle body BBK Long Tube Headers BBK Off-Road X-Pipe - No Cats Magnaflow Competition Cat-Back Exhaust Carbon-Fibre Limited slip diff rebuild/upgrade kit Ford Racing 4:10 gears I use the car mainly for weekend fun...I take it to the strip 2-3 times per year...just wanting to do a good N/A build up for now but leave myself an option to supercharge later... What RWHP would be a good estimate with my current set-up? What RWHP would be a good estimate with the Stage 4 Cams? What would be my best choice for a cam based on what I have done to the car so far? I plan on having an actual Dyno Tune done once the cams are installed...what is reasonable to expect for RWHP once everything I've described it done? Please provide comment.

BCChromeYeller

  • For the modifications you have done to the car right now you are probably looking at around 280rwhp. After the cams are installed with a proper tune you will most likely be closer to the 300rwhp range. The Comp Cams Stage 4 camshafts will be the perfect upgrade for your application. You will lose some slight driveability with these camshafts giving your car an aggressive lope, but in the end you will definitely be happy with the performance. These are only estimates based off of some of the cars we have here. Keep in mind horsepower can be affected by many factors like altitude, temperature, humidity, miles on the motor, proper maintenance done to the car, etc.

    The lope and roughness of these cams is ridiculous. I love the sound and have no drivability issues. Daily drive the car with no problems. Picked up an extra 30 or so horses also. The power curve starts a little earlier and lasts through 6200. It pull waaay harder than ever before. Thanks American muscle for another great product!
