    Im looking for something that i can still use for a turbo setup later on, but i want to see some reasonable power now. i've been thinking about one of these four and im not real sure which will match my needs.

    1. Stage 1 Skunk2 cams
    2. Brand new JDM ITR cams
    3. Brand new JDM CTR intake cam, and a brand new JDM ITR exhaust cam
    4. Brand new JDM CTR cams
    (i have heard they should have other upgrades to be safe)

    im not really in a possition to upgrade other components of my valvetrain, so im also looking for something that will be safe for daily use and won't fuck shit up if i happen to miss shift.

    also can anyone link me to a write up on how to install cams, i know someone local that will do it, but he wants $300.

    thanks for your help.

    well, option 4 = 3. the CTR exhaust cam is an ITR exhaust cam.

    if you plan on going turbo, i wouldn't do any of them.

    for a good upgrade, get 4/3 you will not "need" to upgrade your valvetrain if you don't plan on revving past 8200rpm.

    buy a helms manual, best $60 you can ever spend on your car.

    awsome, thanks.

    i love my ecu, the rev limitor is set at 8300, and as most of you know vtec doesn't disengage until 8200, so i pretty much never get out of vtec.

    You should buy a set of used GSR cams. They are slightly more aggressive than your B16 cams and are P-E-R-F-E-C-T for FI applications.
