Crower 0409 retro roller
And Edelbrock's 2208 retro roller:
For a comparison, here is the lunati flat tappet cam that is being replaced with one of the above cams:
If you were to choose between the Crower, or the Edelbrock, which one would you go with considering I am using Summit/Dart vortec heads and a Pro Comp airgap intake with 3310S Holley 750cfm carb....
I am not interested in different cams from other manufacturers because I plan on staying with the valve springs in these heads...Which cam is the better, or as I see it, there is not any difference, or not enuf to notice in the seat of my pants...So far, Edelbrock is the cheaper price doing a search on the internet...About $295 shipped....
Here are the results from a hotrod mag comparison of the optional Bowtie Vortec heads from Scoggin Dickies vs Summit/Dart vortec heads
