The purpose is to increase HP and TQ and also to get one that runs and makes power at a RPM that will work with the gears on the car, For the best performance that you can get.

The difference between camshaft is lobe design, lobe lift, lobe center line, and more the best bet is to find out what you want the car to do and then call one of the manufactures of cams tell them what you want to do and let them help you find a cam.
