    not only will they not work, but even if they did, the gains would be seen on the vtec crossover. don't waste your time. other companies make really good non-vtec cams. they are cheap to.

    i totally wasn't even thinking about that. my first thought was that he had a shitload of bent valves and a warped head and the only thing salvageable were the cams. it's worth a shot if it isn't all jacked up.
