    doubt that there would even be a gain. The B16 cams are slightly more agressive. If you were to ever go turbo, I would say sure, but not for na. Like adam said, get som 01 spec ITR cams or CTR cams

    gsr cams have both more lift and duration than b16 cams, but are still smaller than itr cams

    you will gain some ponies with them.... but doin't expect the world

    gsr also gets help form having .2 more litres of displacement, not just the cams. the decimal number is the lift in inches, the other number is the duration in degrees of the crankshaft.
