I'd say go with the crane cams only because they are less pricey.

I voted Crane, I would say Cossie if you got their whole package so the cams mesh with the other items and you're buying as a lump parcel, but if you're buying separate the Cranes sound just as good.

Climber, I'm pretty sure the transmission doesn't matter. In this case though, you know we're talking Duratec cams right, that your 2001 doesn't have? You have different options than our cars.

I have FR stage III, 218/216 @.050 9.9mm lift, idling at 960 rpm is nice, big gains from 3500 up. lower end power is pretty good too.
