    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.

        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!

        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!

        Helpful (5)

        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.

        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

            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

            Was on time with the shipping date and wasn’t so hard to install just make sure you replace the springs and cam followers for better performance out your cam

            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..

            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.

            I bought the stage 2 xtreme energy cams. I just found out that I needed to get the bolts for the timing gears they are the 12mm bolts from ARP part number is 256-1001. The 10mm bolts are for the stock cams. And for the two bolts they are a little pricey.

            Absolutely AWESOME! Classic Muscle Car Sound!!

            These cams are absolutely awesome. I paired them with some Long Tube Headers and a O/R X-Pipe, and it sounds INCREDIBLE! I've never enjoyed sitting at a red light until now! I love listening to that classic muscle lope!! Not to mention how much more the car pulls me into the back of my seat now that I have these new parts installed!! If you have the money and the time, these cams are perfect for a street driven car such as mine!!

            Great sound, little performance gain without tune.

            This cam kit sounds really great. Wasn't my first time doing a build on a 2v but for someone without experience, you will want to have a professional install. I knew going into it that 2v motors really wont get a gain from cams like an LS does but the sound your 2v will create with these is insane. To anyone attempting to install, the cam bolt holes are a different size than your stock ones but with a quick search youll find the ford part# or the ARP for the correct bolt (if i remember correctly M14). Happy with my purchase, just know that you wont get an extra 50hp to the wheels. Lastly, you will need a tune otherwise your mustang will be running very lean. (it will run and drive just not at highest performance)

            Install wasn't nearly as rough as I had thought it was actually not that difficult needed bigger cam gear bolts 12mm but once it was finished the sound I got was great it's enough to know it's definitely cammed and couldn't be happier with my purchase!

            great cams

            everything was fine except for the threads in the front of the new cams that the timing gears bolt to were different than the threads in the original cams! BIG PROBLEM! I'm a 32 year master tech so I know what I'm doing and I would have had the whole job done in 5 hours. it took me 2-3 hours just to hunt down the correct bolts that NOBODY informed me I would need. cams sound good.

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