A dual pattern cam is better for a motor that has heads that dont flow exceptionally well on the exhaust side. It allows a little more lift and duration on the exhaust side to make up for the flow on the exhaust side of the heads. If you have a head that flows really well ( a ported an polished aftermarket head) the motor doesnt need the extra lift and duration, so a single pattern works better. I would consider the XE274H cam.
