The head itself I believe.

3-angle is good for a street/ track motors
5-angle is better for track/ strip motors

Where did you hear this? The only difference between a 3 angle and 5 angle valve job is that the transitions are smoother. In general, a 5 angle is better, but a radius valve job is by far the best.

Sorry, I did not realize I was saying there was a difference... but rather the situation in which each is mostly used around these parts.

I was also not trying to make it sound like a 3-angle is better than a 5-angle... but I guess that was not very clear.
