It's pretty hard to label one cam company as being better than another. They all make good products, you just have to use a cam that most closely matches the specs that you need in your engine. I've use cams from Erson many times with good success, as well as many from Crane, a few from Comp Cams, an Ultradyne, a Wolverine, and a Lunati. They all worked good and were used because they had the specs that the engine liked. It's best to find out exactly what your engine will like and then go look for a cam that matches those specs the closest, without regard for brand preference. They all sell good products.

Im willing to spend the money. this engine will have nearly 6000 in it...which is quite a bit when your only 16 working part time. Im trying to use the best. I want the most power out of it...while keeping it streetable...and keeping the full out race parts off of it. Thanks for the advice, ryan

I've run Crower, Crane, Ultra Dyne, Comp Cams, and a few other I can't even remember. As far as customer service, Crower has my vote. As far as 'sounding different', Ultra Dyne has my vote there.
I've only run Ultra Dyne and Crane in my NOW motor, but Crane has made the most HP so far in it.
I guess, you get what you pay for. Call all the different cam companies, and get as much information from them as they get from you, (about your vehicle). It's a 2 way street. My .002

FYI, Crower is having a cam closeout. I don't know what you are looking for, but you might have a look. Hyd. and solid cams are $60. Hyd. rollers are $130 and solid rollers are $200, I think. I have used Comp. and Lunati and liked them both. Just bought a Crower to try out. Hope this helps.
