Standard Windsor (EFI) Cam Versus a XR8 Cam

Could any of you technical buffs be able to advice me. Is their any difference's in the "Cam" configuation of a Standard EFI Windsor 5 litre (in say a Fairlane), to a "Cam" in a XR8 ?????.
In other words, if you used a XR8 Cam in a stock EFI Windsor, would you gain some KW's ???.

Re: Standard Windsor (EFI) Cam Versus a XR8 Cam

EA - EL ford 5.0L all had identical 5.0 litre Windsors apart from the ED XR8 Sprint and GTs - so XR8 cam was same as Fairlanes

EL2 XR8 - AU 3, they all had better heads and intake gear and XR 8s had more kw. I'm no expert, but my guess is that if you used an XR8 cam in a standard AU Windsor, you would get more power, but you'd probably want to improve breathing as well.
