Comp Cams 68-232-4 vs 68-200-4

Ok, I have read dozens of posts on here about cams but none comparing these two. So my question is, which cam would you recommend (preferably from actual experience). This is for my 2000 jeep Cherokee 4.0, bored 30 over with a 0630 mildly ported, stock valves and magnum springs. port matched intake and aftermarket header. 62mm throttle body. It has a 4.5" lift with 4.10 gears and a aw4 attached.

As a side note, engine was rebuilt with a 0331 head and the 68-200-4 cam but feels under powered. I plan to tear into it and check the cam timing and am planning on porting 0630 head I have and toss it in. Which is where I am debating on swapping out the cam as this will be the time to do it.

I tried to tell you already, but now I suggest you talk to Russ(there's a way about his speaking)!

The Comp Cams 68-232-4 cam is the one Russ recommends to use with his 4.6 stroker build. Call him.

I ran a 68-232-4 in a stock jeep motor and it had way more mid range power, but would fall off over 4,000 rpms due to valve float. If your magnum springs are up to the task, than that's the cam I'd run.

Magnum springs, w/o specs that mean nothing. I used to have a grab box at work with a 3/4 race cam in it, I don't know how many times people tried to buy it with 1/4 of the cam machined off !!!!

Re: Comp Cams 68-232-4 vs 68-200-4

I am on my second 68-232-4. I didn't have any complaints with the first one, but the #4 exhaust lobe flattened out on me, but I'm pretty sure that was do to other issues.

I just reinstalled a new one, and just as some advice, the cam card that comes with that cam is most likely going to be wrong. Comp prints the card with the timing events notated as @.050 however the events on the card are actually measured as @.006. Also, that cam will most likely be -4* retarded, so you may need to get an adjustable timing set. As others have said, it had good torque and a little bit of mid range but up higher it defiantly trails off. Could be from valve float, or that is just the design of the cam.
