    I know that the GSR Intake dual springs are the same part number as the exhaust dual springs on a Type R (so they can be placed on exhaust side for Type r cams) But the B16A (my motor) has pink coated springs on the intake side that are a different part number then GSR springs. but they are still dual valve springs and I am thinking they are roughly the same as GSR intake springs.

    Wondering if I can get away with those springs moved to the exhaust side? Figure it would save me $100 or so.

    you need GSR valve springs, GSR's have blue paint on em, And I do belive the GSR valvesprings are stiffer.

    For the intake GSR ones? I can get type r ones for almost half that online and shipped. they are about 5 bucks a piece plus tax/shipping.

    And yes they are different colors but I am not too sure on their stiffness differences just yet.

    Okay, that makes sense. I was thinking you were talking only about GSR intake springs only! lol

    My 'half that price' comment was for only half the springs you were talking about lol. I was thinking I could get a way with the B16 switch-a-roo and only buy the ITR intake springs.

    lol thats funny, i figured thats why I posted my comment above yours.

    Im guessing the coil bind might be lower on the b16 than the GSR also might be a stiffer inner spring.

    I would say buy em new, I wouldnt want you to drop a valve or float em on the higher end.

    Also a good Idea to replace the keepers.

If thiese ones are real and not GSR cams I get them....I will get some springs and retainers. (guys sell GSR cams for ITR all over craigslist)

    Dont be ripped off, use that pic to identify.

    I would love to stab them fuckers in the lung with a ice pick and then watch them choke on their own blood while they try to tell their lies.

    Thanks bro. Actually I been studying the pics on ffsquad for some time. I have ran into 4 different guys who are selling ITR cams and I get pics only to see they're actually GSR cams (with the three rings on the outer protruding ring) They act shocked and I have even sent them the same picture you sent me along with GSR cam pics. It has pissed me off so bad I started contemplating the 98+spec swap instead. But I came to my senses....$4500+ (with all me for labor) after its in the car and ready to rip finally made me say that it was too silly. So I'm back on the craigslist hunt.

    I can get the intake and exhaust camshafts from hmotorsonline for $520 plus tax/shipping so I figure I'll find some used ones for around $250-300 give or take (hopefully in my favor!) I got new Skunk2 cam gears already but waiting to get the camshafts. After that I actually have cams in hand, I'll buy the springs/keepers. So that'll be around $220-250 plus I got a guy who has 4 different base map chips for the B16A w/type r cams. ECU, tunable chip and a guarantee for $100


    So I would like to keep it under $500 but I will need to be patient. My current math would be $600 plus the $150 for cam gears I already bought
    .....shit its creeping up on half the cost of a 98+spec after I would sell my current swap lmao

    Keep on the look out for me. I know there's more Honda action done there lol
