    Hey I bought a civic with a gsr swap and turbo'd it the question I have is that when I went to replace the timing belt and such I noticed the cam gears say pr3 on them..So my question is there a way to tell b16 cams from gsr cams also If they are b16 cams am I loosing anything over the gsr cams?Any help would be appreciated..
    Thanks

    I believe the B-series cams are the same.

    Not real sure though!

    People dont have to be smart asses..Why cant I get an intelligent answer from a grown individual?I wasnt talking bout the cam gears anyways I want to know about the cams who cares about the cam gears..I have just heard that the gsr cams have a diff overlap than b16's and are better on turbo'd cars..

    So DONT post unless its a mature statement"Another words grow up" I just ask a simple question I didnt say It would give me alot more power Im just trying to figure out if the dude that had my car before put his b16 cams in out of the b16 he took out..

    you'd make more power with the GSR cams but you are perfectly fine right now just using B16 cams. Using GSR cams are a cheap upgrade and i'm sure you'd notice a difference if you upgraded to GSR cams. Don't pay more than $100 for GSR cams. Anymore and it's not worth it...

    This shows how to tell the difference... EG Tech
