Post Anyone running the XE264HR cam?

I was looking into the XE264HR cam as a daily driver cam. Do any of you run this cam? How does it idle? How does it sound? Any problems with passing emissions? I was also wondering if this would be a good daily driver cam.

would it not depend on what heads used, displacement, supporting hardware?

what if i use it, with afr 165 heads on a 408? and it passes smog, and idles with 21" vacuum..... and you want to use it on a 289, with ported afr 205 heads.....?

not trying to flame, but the question is pointless..... list your combo, and would this XXX cam be right for it?
even that is not enough info..... call cam help @ comp, you will get a better recomendation then the corral i assure you.

well, that is, unless buddy jumps in, and grills ya about the combo, intended use, gearing etc.... and actually recommends a OTS grind for ya, i have only seen it happen once.


good luck, and again, not tryin to break your balls.

nosmatt said - "would it not depend on what heads used, displacement, supporting hardware?"

My thought all along was the question was posted so he could find out just that sort of thing - how's it work with your combo. But you can't find out about the combo until/unless you get folks running the cam to come into the thread. For all we know, CompCams Help line (an oxymoron in my experience) recommended it and he's trying to talk to some other users before buying.

....and, this will bump it back up....

A friend of mine Shawn used the NX264HR in his car with "Thumper E7's" & a Tmoss ported stock lower & he loved it, had just enough thump for him. here's a quote from him...

"with thumpers heads, tmoss lower, 24#, injs on sd I ran 13.90 @ 100 mph with a 1.98 60ft on street tires... my race weight was a hefty 3800# it produces awesome low end tq and preserves the power all way thru the rpm range."

I know this isnt the same cam, but I was looking into the XE264HR cam when I was replacing mine. I instead went with the NX264HR cam which is intended for nitrous. It has a wider LSA of 114* and .512/512 lift. Ive went 13.3s @ 104+mph with a 1.99 60ft in a full weight 88 Tbird with stock bottom end, boxstock windsor jrs, explorer intake, 65mm tb, shorty headers, gutted hpipe, d/m catback, stock AOD w/TCI 2800 stall, and 3.73s. Ive also gone 12.11s @114mph with a 125shot. This was untuned. Since then I have been working on a better tune. I really like the comp cams grinds, they are nite/day difference from stock cam. Just my experience.

Yea, CompCams tech support isn't all that helpful when I call. But I'm planning to use them with AFR 165s with my 3.08 gears.

Agreed! CompCams tech line is just some people sitting there reading their catalog to you over the phone. They really don't know anything. When you tell them your specs they just compare them to the info in their catalog. Anyone can do that! Waist of time IMHO.

Contact Buddy Rawls for advice.

Well.. Appears that you are running stock heads still correct.. Buddy has made a recommendation for a camshaft that works with stock heads and an upgraded exhaust..

Quoting Buddy from the following thread: http://www.corral.net/forums/showthr...highlight=comp
"there is also an off the shelf COMP Hyd Roller that has like 270/270, 215/215 on a 110 that works extremely well. It was well worth the time and effort and cost."

If I were you i'd go with that. :-)

biggeley,
i disagreed with your first post, but now that you have edited, i think i like this one alot more........

i had no idea that cam existed in an ots...at least for this guys setup, might wanna go a bit looser on the converter however....and steeper on the gears. but this one will not be too bad at all with the current setup. leave the long lsa stuff in stock headed cars for the poweradder guys, and the guys who have upgraded heads........imho.

I think I might try this out before thinking about going with the AFRs. I'm on a tight budget right now, so this might work for me. Thanks. Oh by the way, I figured this is the 270HR, part number 35-420-8.

I think that's a much better choice.

I was seriously considering doing the same with stock heads.. But once you figure in the price of upgrading the valvetrain, replacing seals, new gaskets, etc.. You've invested a fair amount of money into the stock setup.

To me that was too much money.. I ended up deciding that the $500 or so it would take to do the cam swap properly would be money better spend on new heads.

Admittedly I really think a combo with that cam, a stock ported lower intake, gears, and exhaust would be killer on the street. For me, I know that I would quickly want more. Then I'd be back at square one saving for new heads and camshaft..

I've driven cars with over 450hp and feel that I don't need that for the street. A nice 250rwhp is good enough for me and I believe that can be done with the stock stuff(ported) and a cam.
