With the 268H your dynamic CR will drop slightly to 7.78. Comp Cams literature shows the 270H as "Biggest cam with stock converter but better with 2000+ stall" so both the 260H and 268H are mild enough to work well with a stock converter, but both would show increased performance with a slightly higher than stock converter. On Comp Cams free simulator software,, the recommended TC for the 260H in a 327 is 1500-2500 rpm. The recommended TC for the 268H in a 327 is 2000-3000 rpm.
