    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 .

    RonaldV

    • 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?

    bryanm

    • 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.

    Just dropped these into my car along with headers and a few other bolt ons. Car is 5 speed manual and occassionally wants to stall when coming to a red light or stop when put into nuetral. Is this simply cause it needs to be tuned or is this something bigger? Car also sounds different under acceleration which I wasn’t expecting is this normal?

    JordanJ

    • Yes, you are going to need a new tune for these cams or you would run into issues similar to what you're describing. You would also see more of a power gain if you were to get a custom tune for those mods.

    I have a 2001 GT Automatic Coupe with 81,000 miles. Runs great with no issues. I drive it almost daily. It’s completely stock except for 40 series Flow Masters. I have to go through emissions here in middle TN. With installing the stage 2 cams will I still be able to pass emissions? And with the timing chain/guide issues the 4.6 has should I replace the chains and guides while doing the cams? Thank you for any info you can provide!

    WesR

    • Replacing the timing chains and guides with the Comp Cams Stage 2 Xtreme Energy XE268H Camshafts is a good idea as a precaution. We are unable to tell if these would pass TN emissions as we do not have any information on the emissions program and requirements in your state.

    i know for a fact that the aluminum engines have their cams pressed onto the cam gears, is there a set sold like this?

    HalJ

    • The Comp Cams Stage 2 Xtreme Energy XE268H Camshafts are designed to accept bolted on cam gears. Comp Cams does not offer a set with pressed on gears.

      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)

      Awesome Cam!

      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.

      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.

      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.
