Desk Top Dyno Help

I just bough myself a desktop dyno by Comp Cams part number 186500 and was filling in the data to calulate the hp. But I got stompped on the camshaft section of it. It says to put in the "cam ramp rate" there are 6 ramp rates to choose from.

Ramp Rate 1: Low acceleration
Ramp Rate 2: Typical OEM
Ramp Rate 3: Mild acceleration
Ramp Rate 4: Medium acceleration
Ramp Rate 5: High accelaeration
Ramp Rate 6: Max acceleration

Where am I considered on this one?

Here are my cam specs:

I'll vote for #4. Major intensity is a little less than 38 degrees.
