    I wanna get some cam gears for my motor and ive been doing some reading on what makes a good cam gear; material, tooth enginering, type of bolt and ease of adjustment. I dont have a big budget and skunk2 and the buddy club ones look alright but i was wondering if anyone knows anything about the teeth on them? I dont really care about how hard it is to read the degrees and im pretty sure both are made of good material i just worry about the teeth shortening my t0b life.


    thanks

    If you do not have a big budget I would say just go with the AEM cam gears.
    AEM is a reliable company and the price is fair. If you want to spend more I agree with B Toda rules.

    Sorry I have not heard anything about the teeth messing up the timing belt.
    Sorry for not helping.
