    It's the European equivalent of the GSR I believe.. the B18 cams will make more power and I would definitely install them if you have some. The B16a cams are the worst performing VTEC cams that I know of.

    c1 is a GSR... C5 is USDM Type R

    GSR cams in a B16 are a slight upgrade but nothing to write home to about. I put GSR cams in my B16 before I got a set of ITR's and the gains were slightly noticable, nothing great though.

    and yes, the c4 is equivilent to the c1 we get here in the states.

    not really. You could go get some itr valve springs just for in case. A tune will really make you feel those cams. Not needed but if you have access you would get a better feel.

    good luck
