Title says it all!

I really love the aggressive and mean sound of cams. Thing is im almost clueless about them lol. I dont really know the difference between each one besides it alters the timing and all that.
Which cams would be best for a stang like mine? One thats a daily driver and will be boosted eventually. Leads me to another question, ive heard about blower cams, can those be used on n/a engines safely?
Thanks for all the help!

I read those but it says the stage 1 is better for a dd and stage 2 for f/i. I want both lol. You think the state 2's should be fine for a daily driver and use them until i supercharge?

Stage 1s are Comp 262s and will install perfectly with 0 issues provided you degree them right. Will have a nice rumble at idle and you can get over 300whp with a 262 cammed car with all the bolt ons and a good tune.

Stage 2s are Comp 270s and you MIGHT be able to get away with installing them straight up in a stock PI motor but you also might have PTV issues. It will be VERY close. This can be remedied by installing them a few degrees retarded and they will 100% work in a stock PI motor as long as you or the installer knows what they are doing.

Could I run the 262 cams in my bullitt with a non pi rotating assembly ? 270s ?

So would it be okay to run the stage ones with forced induction? Or should i just wait and install the stage two along with f/i? Sorry for all the questions im new to cams.

Its totally ok but you won't be able to make any more overall power than you would with the PI cams because of the limitations of the stock internals. You might have a better powerband while out of boost with the S trim but with a set of 4.10 gears you'll be able to get up in the higher RPM range pretty quick anyway.

I mean are you going to supercharge it in the near future or do you just have plans for in a year or two? I ask because plans for a year or two usually turn into longer or never lol. Been there a few times haha.

An article i came across a few months back will answer this Q
https://www.dssracing.com/v/vspfiles...cam-motion.pdf

OP, give this a read too, and see how this jives with your long-term plans. If you're going to boost "eventually", when is that? You may want to consider doing the cams and f/i at the same time to get the right kind of setup for your application. Also, upgraded cams should send you the way of your nearest dyno to be tuned properly.

Good luck with your plans, hope it works for ya

COMP CamsĀ® - Sorry...

Forgot about Hitec stage 2s which, IIRC, you do not have PTV issues with on PI heads/PI rotating assembly. I have never had any experience with them personally though so I'd do a google search.

Hitech is the highest producing stage 2 cam for the PI motors. Might not be the meanest sounding but will add some good hp for the money put into a project like this. Plus I think they are safe on stock valve springs as long as you keep it below 6200 rpms.
