Daniel - You have the ultravan/aircraft scenario. For rpms at 3500 either
the stock 889 or the stock 891 will work very close to the same. Under
3300 rpms the 889 has a slight advantage over the 891.

There has been a lot of ink wasted on Isky 260, GoVair P100, Otto OT-10
for aircraft use. But the truth is, under 3400 rpms they provide no
advantage over a stock 889.

You need to do some serious thinking as to what your actual rpm usage will
be. The 3 cams just mentioned will start to give slightly better numbers
in higher rpms. (Above 3500 rpms) but are otherwise just pretty much the
same as stock - possibly even slightly weaker.
