well we all know how the AVERAGE camshaft is lubed soley by splash from the crank, but did you guys know that crower makes camshafts that make there own lubrication (i believe there is some kind of hole or line in the cam that acts as a channel for the oil to flow through). I am not sure if all crower's cams do this but i know at least some do. Also, why is it that it SEEMS many people use crane and comp cams etc instead of crower...is it the price, quality...anyone know...or am I just imagining things??

I think that more people use the manufacturers you mentioned because they are the ones that do the most advertising.
