    I am getting aem fpr and fuel rail. So i thought what the heck why not the cam gears too? I know people don't like the 3 bolt design, but has anyone actually had any problems with it?

    AEM slipped on me a couple of times. Get Skunk2, HKS. I'm running on TODA's right now, very accurate.

    you dont want the AEM cam gears, as they are only three bolt, get some that are 6 bolt. (Toda, Skunk2)

    another issue is also how much adjustable the gears can go, todas won't let you adjust them more than 5 degrees in either diretion, so that means if they slip, chances are your valve train won't hit your pistons and go cluk cluk.



    Go with the todas. very nice and worth the money.

    if you need more fuel, get larger injectors and a fuel pump, the stocke oem honda fuel rail on b series motors will support in the area of 400-500HP, once you throw the pressures around, honestly it creates a decent amount of stree within the fuel rail.

    back to the issue of how much there cam gears suck. My freind on his LS had a set of the AEM's, and when he went to adjust them, ever bolt had striped. Then he got his easy-out out (lol) and tried to remove the bolts. All that did was ripped the bolts to peices instead of griping them and removing them. Why is this? AEM's bolts are extremly shitty. They could use playdough and it would be harder bolts. He later replaced ever bolt with some good grade 8 bolts, and now he hasn't really had any problems.

    No matter what brand you have, put locktite on the bolts, and check them offten. Pill_PMD had the Skunk2 gears, and had them slip on him because the bolts lossen up.
