Cam for 460 EFI? EFI - Does it matter?

Hi guys,

We are going to rebuild the 460ci out of our '88 F-250. It runs well but only has 130psi in one of the cylinders and burns oil.

Anyways here is the question.

Cam cam cam?

Ive been doing some simulations with desktop dyno to find an appropriate cam. Ive only been looking at Comp Cams due to them having a good description of each one as well as specs etc.

Here are the 3 cams i've been looking at.

The 260H, X4262H and the XE256H.

Now the last one forementioned is under a section called Computer COntrolled.

The 460 is EFI so does that mean that I will have to use this cam? Or will other mild cams such as the 260H work with the stock computer as well?

The truck is mainly used for hauling, towing a 5th wheel, trailers etc. No racing or anything like that. The rebuild will be mild.

So should I just stick with the Cam designed for EFI or are there other options. I would be grateful if you could list some other cams that would work.

Thanks in advance,
