    Hello, i was just wondering if anyone has had experience with either crane or crower. Im planning to build an LS all-motor and i was just wondering what camshafts i should go with. I heard both companies are good and ive been trying to find info on the crane cams. For the crowers, i was looking at the 62404's:

    Advertised Duration-----Duration @ .050"------Gross Lift w/1.75
    ------249 / 251---------------216 / 218------------.446 / .432

    and the cranes 101-0016, i found these specs:

    ------advertised duration----duration at .050----lobe sep-------gross lift
    -------------274/274--------------218/218-----------108-----------433/433

    the specs for 101-0018 are at:
    http://64.90.9.168/SpecCard/DisplayCatalog...asp?pn=101-0018

    There close except for the duration and the lift....is longer duration better for all-motor, or more lift? can someone explain what each caterogy means and which cams would be better? any pro's or cons on either company. Your feedback would be helpfull, thanks in advance. :worthy:

    404's are huge. be prepared to run 12.5:1 or higher compression to fully take advantage of them.

    else, run 403's.

    i have 0 experience with crane, so my vote goes to crower.... althrough, crane owns zex... and we've all heard of that
