Which CAMS for a 147 Selespeed

HI guys,
Need some advise on C&B cams and Cat cams for a 147 2L Selespeed.
Has anybody got them?
I do alot of spirited run and B-road drive. Looking for something strong on the mid range

Current Setup:
- BMC CDA
- Longer and slightly bigger exhaust
- Squardra Tuned


Here are the option:

C & B cams
- Road medium 10.5 9.6 272/258
- Road max 10.4 10.0 260/272

Cat cams
- 1031511 265/257 - 232/226 - 10.60mm/10.25mm
- 1031512 268/265 - 237/232 - 10.75mm/10.60mm

Any advise.... thanks

I have used cat cams a lot but not is this engine.. well known as a great cam maker on the renault clio circuit.. and been looking again into their cams for a V6 engine i,m doing

C & B also well known throughout alfa circles so its a tough choice.

The cat cams seem to offer more lift and slightly more duration on the inlet and having used their cams i would be likely to do so again.

Thanks so much for your reply... So from what you're saying is.. the catcam has got more pull since it has more lift and duration.

Am i correct... ?
