Sean Hyland vs 98 cobra cams

I found a pretty good deal on some Sean Hyland cam regrinds. Stage 1 reground cams for $500. Does anyone know whether or not they would be worth the extra few hundred bucks over 98 cobra cams?

Sean Hyland cam specs are:

Lift Intake: 0.452
Lift Exhaust: 0.452
Duration Intake: 209
@ 0.50 exhaust: 209

I am just looking for a set of cams that will be used with stock springs and retainers for some extra punch in the power band. Also not going very aggressive so I retain as much low end as possible while it's a DD car. Once I have finished doing a full build on the transmission, suspension, and rear end, then I will put a big boy motor in there.

I would stay away from any type of regrind cams......especially SHM ones, been there done that 15 years ago.
96-98 cams seem to work pretty good in mach and marauders.
you can also find 13-14 GT 500 cams for cheap from time to time as well.

Re: Sean Hyland vs 98 cobra cams

Thank you for the reply. I went ahead and grabbed a set of 98 cobra intake cams. Since I know I will be putting a forged bottom end in for boost in the future, I figured I would be better off with the 15-20rwhp gain for less than $400, That way I save more towards the boost end of the build.
