use the one with the 108 degree lobe centers. the car will get off the corner better.

THE LOWER THE LOBE SEPARTATION THE SMALLER THE USEABLE POWERBAND.

YOU DONT WANT TOO MUCH DURATION, AT THAT COMP. RATIO, I WOULD CALL COMP CAMS... AND GET THEM TO SUGGEST A CAM THEN LOOK FOR A SIMILAR ONE IN A WHITE BOX FOR HALF THE PRICE.
