      • Mild Street Performance
      • Good Horsepower and Torque
      • Noticeable Idle
      • Compatible with Stock Tune
      • For 1996-2004 GT and Bullitt Mustangs


      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 cams

        This cam produces a significantly bigger lope than I expected. The idle is almost overbearing, the power gains were also way more than expected. Dynod 306 WHP and 272 torque at 6,500 rpm on a mustang dyno. With Full bolt ons and the stage 2 cam with comp gears, springs, and retainers. You also will need a stall converter on an automatic, my car wants to jerk at low speeds

        What you need to know

        If you have the Windsor 4.6 you will need to buy the timing gears, the special spacers and washers, the valve springs and caps, and (last but not least) the one time use bolts (in this case #12 bolts) the same size as the crankshaft bolt. These are a must have! (Windsor) If you have the Romeo engine you will need the springs, caps, and bolts (#12).

        Don’t buy these if your looking for a aggressive lope.. you can barely hear it at a idle. Install was kinda tricky the heads ended up having to come off to replace the valve springs and retainers.. which means all new gaskets.. and head bolts.. defiantly can feel the increase in Hp more in the top end than lower end. Had buy to buy 12mm apr screws the stock ones that came with my gt did not fit in the cams..

        4 2003 GT - DaltonS Installation Time: Weekend

        Expected more

        Received my cams and installed them along with new valve seals, springs, retainers and clips. Cams had mismatching cores which made me seriously doubt their integrity. I used a spare crankshaft bolt and new washer and sent it. When you receive these cams check the cores immediately to make sure the threads match. Gains were very minimal of course it’s 95 outside and humid. Have a bama tune also. If your looking for a solid na build, cams alone will be disappointing.

      Would these work with 3.73 gears???

      • Yes, typically speaking when looking at the recommended gear ratio lent on the product page, you can also look at this as a minimum. As long as you have a 3.23 or higher you will be good to go!

      Do you need a stall converter for the stage2 cam shafts .

      • Hey Ronald, You would be able to install these cams with out the need for an upgraded stall converter. They are great for stock tuned mustangs!

      can you use 03 GT factory cam gears and factory springs with these?

      • The Comp Cams Stage 2 Xtreme Energy XE268H Camshafts will require upgraded valve springs. Aftermarket adjustable cam gears are not required, but are strongly recommended but not required.

      This Comp Cams stage 2 is designed for Mustangs with 3.23 to 3.55 gears. Can I put this stage 2 camshafts with 4.10 gears without any issues? Thanks.

      • Absolutely, as long as your gear ratio is larger than 3.23 you will be just fine installing the Comp Cams Stage 2 Driveshafts.

      Will these work with any 550 lift aftermarket valve springs and retainers or do these only work with comps springs and retainers? 1 answer
      Hi, i bought these stage 2 cams, I'm now getting them Installed. I tried using the stock cam gear bolt, they are much smaller in diameter. I read some of the question and answer, someone said stock cam gear bolts, spacer, washer would fit the new cam. The stock bolts don't fit. Another question asked if 12mm bolts would fit. If this is true do you sell these item? 1 answer

      I have a stock (non-rebuilt) 2V (PI heads) with a Vortech kit. Assuming that these are installed with the upgraded springs, retainers, and cam gears (and properly degreed); is it safe to assume that I likely won't encounter PTVC issues? I'm hoping not to have to pull the heads to check for clearance; which is why this cam appeals to me more than the Stage 3 1 answer
      Is it necessary to upgrade the exhaust manifolds with installing these cams? Currently have an O/R H pipe, and SLP cat back, but would it need shortys or longtubes? Also have a SR performance CAI. 1 answer
