the differnece i would have to assume is the actualy shape and position of the lobes on the camshafts, as in a dohc motor, the seperate cams control the seperate valves.

right, also dual cams are more efficient that a single, thats why dual cam motors have more potential than single, such as a b16 compared to that of a d16.
