    Cast typically will be heavier. Like a cast cam, if you drop it, it breaks.
    Hydroform will be lighter. if you drop it, it'll bend or deform.

    I have examples of cast, hydroformed and 335is hydroformed cams that have come out of various N54's. Probably have 10 sets on the shelf right now.
