    5 Top Rated Questions

    Will I need upgraded valve springs for this cam with stock 1.6 rockers? And will I need upgraded springs with 1.7 rockers?

    • Due to the aggressive nature of the Comp Cams Stage 5 Xtreme Energy XE282HR Camshaft and the relatively weak factory valve springs, stronger upgraded valve springs will be required with this cam, regardless of rocker selection.

    Hi, I have a 1967 (not a 1979) Mustang Fastback with a 347 stroker. Will the XE282HR kit will fit in it? Thank you for your answer. Regards. Eric

    • The Comp Cams Stage 5 Xtreme Energy XE282HR Camshaft fits 1986-1995 Mass Air Equipped 5.0L Mustangs, it will not fit a 1967 model year.

    what would I have to do to keep my computer and efi. will this have enough vacuum for my 95 cobra? 347edelbrock top end

    • The Comp Cams Stage 5 Xtreme Energy XE282HR Camshaft will work fine with the stock PCM and fuel injection. Though, it would be a good idea to get a tune for the car to ensure that everything is running properly.

      Awesome cam

      Installed the cam in a 347 stroker and I'm glad I did. It pulls hard with a nice aggressive idle I could feel a big power difference than the other cams I have used.. great product and very quick shipping.. would definitely recommend to others.

      I'm glad I got this cam and the Bama tune. It's just the right part I needed to put my 1994 gt and the other mods on the car to realy make it run and sound truly great. Plus the sales staff were great at helping me out and got me the best bang for my buck.
