Are you asking a question you need an answer for? Because the difference is very simple ! (I never heard of rollerized cams!) I have used rollerized cam bearings and the last ones I installed the block machining for it was $700.00! A little expensive for most people and not needed for most engines the lead Babbitt bearings work well enough !unless you want extended life for race type abused engines or industrial engines that run 24 hrs. a day 365 days a year ! When you say "roller cam' its understood by most engine builders and cam co.'s that your talking about a cam ground and designed for roller lifters! Usually an engine builder uses rollerized cam bearings after many Babbitt bearing failures! Or is running them to head them off On very expensive engines!

I hope this answers your question
