Its a bit of a girly cam.......
Girly is a bit harsh. You FF guys are a tough crowd...

I already have some Comp valvetrain parts and I am a fan of their cams. The XE282HR is a fair bit wilder than the X303 (+8* @ 50th), so perhaps the XE274HR is the go? The car is a daily driver and cannot be too wild on the drivability / noise / economy / emissions front.

Agreed, I recently changed from an E303 to an F303.
Abit lumpier in the idle, Alot more go when starting to rev out.
Good drivabillity & economy, so far,,,...

Yeah the TFS cams are really popular in the US at the moment with the TFS-51402000 being used on the 5L engines and the TFS-51402001 and TFS-51402002 getting good numbers with the strokers. Plus they are nice and cheap.

TFS-51402001

224 intake/232 exhaust .542"/.563" 112 with power range of 2800-6300rpm

TFS-51402002

236 intake/248 exhaust .574"/.595" 110 with power range of 3500-7000rpm

The Comp cams XE282HR is listed as having a power band of 2600-6600 in a 5.0. The stroker will bring that down a couple of hundred revs. The peak lifts are .565" inlet & .574" exhaust.
The stage 3 Trickflow is 3500-7000rpm and .574" inlet & .595" on the exhaust.
Both cams would well suit the Trickflow/AFR heads where the heads are still flowing well into the .600" lift regions - but the stage 3 would probably be best set up advanced to bring the power range down into realism.

I replaced my 282 with a 274 because i wanted a smoother more streetable ride.

Not that there is anything wrong with the 282, its a strong cam, but i'm getting older and less tolerant....
Racer, you have this bumpstick so can you please give us a few of your engine specs?

If a 347, at what RPM did peak power occur? I don't want to rev the crap out of my engine for a few extra ponies. My current cam (Crane 2030) peaks at 5500 and I just want to extend this to 6000/6200 but no more.
