    im lookin to get some cams and cam gears for my b16a, what are some good ones for me to get?

    alot of ppl said type r cam shafts

    best combo ive seen with proof is skunk 2 cams and cam gears.

    also when i order cams , what car do i order them for or any bseries part will fit into mine, like skunk2 cams for a type r or skunk2 for a gsr? is there a power difference? will they both fit?

    all b series vtec cams are the same as far as fitting goes.... now what cams you get is all depending on what you want...

    are you going all motor? turbo? is this your daily driver? shit like that

    as all motor is concerned, personally as far as bang for the buck id suggest ctr intake cam and itr exhaust cam, still not exactly cheap....
    take it a step up and get skunk2 stage 2 cams, they recomend their valve train, and it's not a bad idea, not worth it to drop a vavle.... if your a baller and have alot of money to blow on toda shit, (over 5 bills for each cam) then the valvetrain, not to mention making sure your bottom end can handle the revving beyond redline it takes to get maximum potential out of those things ...

    now as far as turbo alot of people suggest GSR cams, skunk2 has a new turbo grind out but i havn't heard anything about it, and then there's always crower.

    Stay away from any cam gear with less than 5 bolts on it.

    sorry ITR header lol
    well anyways my next question

    anyone used CTR Pistons and CTR Cam Shafts? are they good? or should i go with the Skunk2 setup?

    why i ask this is because with CTR Pistons and Cams i have more money to do pistons, cams, cam gears, with skunk2 i have only enough for cam shafts and adj cam gears.

    When i find a honda for a decent price, i'm going to use Toda Spec C and Cam gears.. so IMO, Toda is one of the best.
