The Competition will more likely be more lopey cause it uses a 110 Lobe sep. were as the Crane uses I belive a 112 or 114.
Personally I would be more worried bout using the best "matched" cam than the bigger or lopey'er one.Nothing worse than a lopey beastly sounding car that can't get out of its own way.
Know what I mean Vern???

Comp vs. Crane cam

I agree with 78monte. Comp Cams has a free download that lets you spec everything and shows you a list of cams to choose from. Besides that if you haven't heard, Crane went out of business last month. Sorry.

The rest of the "world" disagrees w/you. Small wonder, actually- but I digress. I am going to try to keep this on a non-personal level as you already know my position.

Take a look HERE.

Crane products are still being sold. They will continue to be until stock is depleted and possibly longer if the name's bought out by another manufacturer.

Crane as we knew it is DOA, IMHO.

Unless something has changed it sounds like S&S is going to try and get it up and running.

Might be a good move on S&S's part- Crane is a well recognised name, obviously, and hasn't suffered too badly through their decline, IMHO.

Is this S&S as in S&S Cycle? If it is, I wonder if they'll keep the automobile line or concentrate on bikes.
