    Is there a way to tell if I have VTEC cams? I have a set i purchased and I dont know if they are or aren't. Are there any markings or numbers I should look for? I have pictures on ebay search listing #8038264230 . Thanks for any help.

    they should have a big third lobe in the middle of each sets of 2 small lobes.

    the cams pictured in that auction are Vtec cams but he says they were pulled out of an LS. LS' are not Vtec. I'd stay away.

    i haVE them listed on ebay, someone emailed me, seeing the ebay ad and told me they arent ls. reason i ask is, i was origanally told they were ls. If they are VTEC what are they worth, roughly?

    oh I thought you were purchasing them. if they are B16 cams, expect $40-$50. If they are GSR's, anywhere from $80-$125 is fair.

    I have a pair of 98 JDM GSR cams and probably still have the cam gear too. I switch to skunk2 internal when I got the motor swap at 35K. let me know if you interest. sorry for using ur post to ad.
