    Hi,

    The serious question i have, is which OEM camshafts and which Aftermarket camshafts are the best for my set up???

    So, the set up will be:

    B18C5 block with stock internals;
    B16A2 head, ported;
    IM ported with Cold air intake, Hondata head/IM gasket;
    Header in near future;
    Full exhaust;
    ECU tuning;

    1. Which OEM camshafts are better for my set up? CTR(from K20) or ITR????

    2. Wich aftermarket camshafts should i go, if i also will upgrade valvetrane, and WHY that camshafts?
    I know skunk2, Blox and some others...
    But there are so many Stages and manufacturers of them, so i do not know wich are better, and which to choose?

    PLEASE HELP AND GIVE ME ADVICE

    I definitely recommend upgrading springs and retainers with any aggressive all motor cam upgrade. I would go with skunk2 stage 1 or 2 depending on how high you plan to rev the motor. But for less valvetrain wear and best useable powerband i would use their stage 1 cams. Ive personally used them and their springs and retainers with good luck. Hope this helps

    upgrade the valvetrain to at least Type R springs and retainers. Use Type R cams or any other reputable company's Stage 1 Cam. You don't really have high enough compression to take full advantage of any stage 2 and up cams. Top company I would go with is Toda, but that's just me. There are numerous other companies you can go with.

    Type R valvetrain is pretty much good enough to run most companies Stage 1 cams as long as you do not exceed the Type R redline, which I believe is 8800rpm. Someone correct me if i'm wrong. If you decide to go stage 2 or higher, i'd suggest using the same company for both the valve train and cams.

    Just remember most stage 2 and higher cams usually don't idle like stock.

    oh and K series cams WILL NOT work, you have a B Series motor.

    the rocket motorsports M22x is always a good choice when running a close to stock B series.
