I'm trying to decide which of these cams to get. I emailed comp, and all I got was a printout of the specs. I have a 289 4bbl with headers, I'm keeping the stock stall converter in my c-4, but I'm going to upgrade valve springs. What are some real world differences between these two? Does one make more power, does one make more torque, does one......? I'm trying to understand what all the specs mean, but some of you may be more familiar with these cams. Thanks

The difference is finer than "frog's hair".

The tech guys at Comp are great to talk to in my experience. It's a free call at 1-800-999-0853, definately worth your time before making a purchase.
