    What kind of racing are you doing? The skunk2 Stage3 are horrible for a daily driver, they are not streeable what so ever. I am not to fimmiliar with toda's or JUN stuff so i cant tell you my oppion about them. Unless this is going in to a strickly race car (trailor queen) these aggressive cams are not good for you.

    for street. CTR cams are sweet. good gas mileage, and they pull harder than stock over 5K. i swear by mine for a daily driver

    yeah whats your purpose for them, makes a huge difference... like pills said CTR is the way to go as far as daily driving good idling cams.

    well, the most aggresive spec of any of those cams would be the eriks racing toda's, also known as spec D's... go check them out, they are insane... but, that would be for N/A drag application, probably not too streetable, and would need all sorts of other engine work done :).

    The most aggressive (popular) cam really that can be used with normal street applications is the skunk2 stage 2, they give about 8-12 hp more then ITR's and still keep a reasonable idle

    (doing tags are alot easiyer on this board)

    well, be a little more specific with everything else you'll be running, like pistons, CR, P&P, intake mani, tb, fuel, engine management, balance blueprint, which B motor ?? these would help a lot

    :withstupid: :werd:

    get more specific with your question please :D

    but personal recommendation as for trailor queen status is either toda spec D's or Crower Stage 3's...

    assuming this is a N/A drag setup

    What is the difference between Cams in an engine that has an automatic trans, and an engine with say a 5 Spd tranny'? And also for a daily driver waht is the best cam for a B18A1 (with new Sleeves, Rings, Pistons(10.5:1 compression] New rods "Crower", And new Main and rod bearings along with new thrush washers"Top-Line"). Thjis car is the car I use to get to and from school.. teh engine has a little over 180 Horse (187).

    As far as Hondas go, the cams in the auto's are less aggressive than the cams in the 5-speeds.
