Description
Ideal Upgrade. If you're ready to take the next step with modifications but don't want to go forced induction, consider a set of Comp Cams Stage I Xtreme Energy Camshafts. The perfect addition to your street-driven Pony, this cam is a perfect balance of drivability and power when you don't want to sacrifice either.

Power on Demand. The XE262AH Camshafts are a great balance of additional power delivered throughout your whole RPM range. And unlike more aggressive cams which may deliver bigger top end gains, the XE262AH doesn't force you to sacrifice power or torque on the low end.

Daily Driver Friendly. This camshaft is a great choice for daily driven 'Stangs with its slightly more aggressive idle and power profile. With a tune, this street-friendly camshaft will give you the additional power you want, without the lack of drivability sometimes experienced with more aggressive cams.

Application. This SOHC Camshaft is designed for 1996-2004 4.6 two valve V8 Mustangs with Performance Improvement Heads. Recommended for use with Comp Cams 26113 Valve Springs.

Does this have a noticeable lope in the idle? I was thinking about purchasing these stage 1 cams because I want the significant increase in power that they provide. However, I'm not a huge fan of a very noticeable lump in the idle. With this being the stage 1, would the idle remain fairly constant and not lumpy? Or is there any video that shows the idle characteristics of these cams?

    This is the correct size for a stock engine

    I didn't want to risk having my pistons kissing the intake valves with the larger stage II camshafts so I purchased these stage I camshafts. I have read in several articles that the stock 4.6 P.I. two valve engines have a very tight piston to valve clearance. These stage ones work just fine and let me just say, the idle has a really nice little lump to it and once you stomp the accelerator pedal you will know they're doing what they're intended to do. The engine pulls very good and feels like it could keep on going. I had these professionally installed by top notch mechanics at a performance shop and the cost was right at $500. If you want a pair of good cams that are the correct size for your stock engine or if you don't want to lose power in the lower RPMS, these will make you happy. Like I said earlier, these cams do have a nice little lump to the idle quality which is a nice bonus. Highly recommended.

    comp cam for street

    Normal installation, works well with the 4.6 v8. Only problem, required new cam bolts (not included). Cost us a couple days to have ordered from local ford dealer and another $30. That was the only problem, very pleased otherwise.

    Comp Cams XE262AH awesome!

    With these cams, Trick Flow heads and a Professional Products Typoon intake I gained 66 horsepower to the rear wheels of my 03 GT automatic. Before the dyno I had 229. After, 295. Not bad for an automatic transmission. My goal was 300 RWHP so now I am going to swap the shorty headers for long tubes and that should get me the 300 I was looking for.

    Comp Cams Easy Swap

    I chose the XE262AH for the very reasons they list in the company's paperwork, it keeps my Mustang a daily driver, I don't need to do a vast number of other things (stall converters etc) to really get the best from it. After the tune it was a solid seat of the pants feeling across the entire power band. It was an easy install but that's because I did it during a complete motor swap. With the motor in a car I'd say it's a full day to weekend job depending on skills and tools etc. Don't forget to purchase new larger bolts for the cam gears, in my application the new ones are the same size as the crank bolt.

    Awesome Street Cams!

    These cams are perfect for the street. Noticeable idle. Didn't lose any power or torque down low and they still scream in higher rpm's. These cams actually outperformed some custom stage 3 cams I had in the mustang. Will work great on stock heads and even better with trick flow 38cc heads or any ported heads. Just got my car back and put down 330rwhp/ 328rwtq on a stingy mustang dyno! Definitely a good purchase! The real question is what are you waiting for?

    Perfect fit

    This is the perfect street cam. Nice lope at idle. Had to bump idle rpm to 850 to eliminate the idle surge when pulling to a stoplight. No big deal.

    XE262AH

    These cams are perfect for anyone looking for a little more kick out of their GT without sacrificing any drive-ability. No noticeable low end loss! My car picked up a little on the mid range and top end and it does indeed have a noticeable idle. My car now has Trickflow Heads paired with these cams and I have absolutely no complaints. Car made 344hp and 360ft/lbs of torque. Here is a vid of the idling characteristics. - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bHUF_wS3_To
