I say close ratio differential. Cams actually won't give you more low end torque. If anything they will reduce low end torque and increase high end HP. Plus this is never cheap.
It's stupid to get cams which give you more low end torque. You must make sure you know what your doing. Getting low duration cams will increase your low end torque. However, it will completely destroy your high end. It'll feel like driving an SUV, all low end, no high end.
The most cost effective way to "feel" like you have more torque (not low end) is to play with your gearing (differential). The RPM's will rise quicker so that you'll get to peak power outputs sooner, you don't gain low end torque.
