Default Best cams for 2.5RS

I have a '99 2.5 RS with full exhaust and CAI and I'm looking for more power; I know Cobb and Rallitek both make cams for my car; are there any differences between the cams they make? What is the best streetable cam in your opinion? I did a search and saw that a lot of people use the Cobb spicy cam; is it that much better than their street cam, which I could keep if I decided to go turbo later?

Don't rule out TWE. I just purchased a set of their street cams and are having them installed as we speak.

$100. My RS is with Lynwood Subaru getting the Head gasget recall done. Since they have to remove the heads to do so, I'm having them swap out the cams and valve springs. Subaru pays most of the coin for labor, and I get new cams.

BTW...I did the same thing when I had a lightweight flywheel installed.

I don't get it, the recall was so they can put in something basically like stop leak there's no taking anything apart. Hell my friends 99' Rs started leaking antifreeze from the head gasket and they still didn't give him an new one, they said they had to do that first and if it didn't work then they'd change it. Needless to say that pissed me off a lot because they were being cheap. Could you please elaborate? Maybe they are just hooking you up with a good price.
