    Comp 268H cam sound

     



    I picked up a 268 H comp cam . At there site they describe it a mild rough idle . At a stang site someone mentions it as very mild . I.m looking for a sweet cammy sound but a drivable car . This is the link to specs . I want something noticable but not race . You guys with this experience hopefully will know a sound quality for this cam..

    I ran the 268H in a 9:1 355 for a few years, and yes it is a pretty tame sounding cam. Unless the idle was below 700 rpm or so it was hardly noticable.
    You may want to take a look at the 270H, you can still use a stock converter with an auto and will have a bit more lope...

    something that i've found that really helps too is use flowmaster 2 chamber mufflers.... they'll really enhance the sound on your small block.... i've run a few other mufflers and the flowmaster definately had the sweetest sound.... the 270H is a good suggestion.... it'll put out a little more power than the 268H, its still mild but if you go much higher then you have to start making more modifications to the car
    just because your car is faster, doesn't mean i cant outdrive you... give me a curvy mountain road and i'll beat you any day

    We used a 268H cam in a high mile 1965 SJ 327 with fuelly heads dual plane intake 750 VS Holley .That engine went into a street Vega with a TH400 355 gear . Car ran 13.26 on street tires . The 268H was 218 dur at 050 and 454 lift 110 lobe sep . That engine sounded good .

    Denny and all thanks for the help . Denny sounds are a great help all i found was the thumper at comp . The 268H sounded ok in the vette . The LS1 was sweet sounding also . The 269 and 275 sounds great also .
