I'm putting together a new 460 for my pickup and I've got it narrowed down to two:
Comp Cams #34-235-4 218/226,.514/.524, 111
Crane #353942 216/228, .518/.513, 112
The truck's 2WD, 4500#, 9.5:1 compression, mild cleanup on the exhaust ports, 3.55:1, C6,stock converter, headers,weiand stealth, 600cfm, It needs to tow, good vacuum, 14's in the quarter , and decent mileage(in that order)

1968 Mustang,Clevor,C4
1969 Torino 351C 4spd
1978 F150 460 C6
1978 F150 351W C6

If you end up picking from the two you have narrowed it down to, I would suggest the Comp. Better numbers on the exhaust side of it. I'm sure you've noticed that you could drop a tennis ball down the intake ports and even though you've cleaned up the exhaust side, these motors really respond to anything to aid the exhaust.

Alex, isn't the 268 a symmetrical cam? Will it perform as well as an asymmetrical?

In your application yes. I used to install 268H's in MKVII's and 73-76 460 T-Birds. WOW, what a difference.

Alex,

What cam would you suggest if I had a set of worked cobra jet heads, pop-up pistons. I want to shift at around 5800-6200 and not gonna spin the motor more than 6500 rpms.
