Yea i've called Summit before, and it seem's that you get 10 different answer's from 10 different tech guy's, but that EX268 Comp cam is often recemended because it is one of the most populer cam's sold thru them, but if you want some good cam advice talk to old man Elgin at Elgin Cam's he seem's to come from an old school perspective, or you can fill out the recamendation form on the web site. (GOOD LUCK)
