    :cliffs: On ebay, as well as other sites, people are making boot leg honda packages, lables, and trying to sell the cams as ITR cams. Things to look out for are:

    Pink packageing of the cams. Real ones are wraped in orange packageing
    Burs on the cams
    Bronze color lobes. Real ones are a dark silver color
    Fake boxes have one large tab to open them, real ones have 2 small tabs to open.


    Here are the real specs on the real cams

    Following Cams Measured at 1mm of lift:
    Integra Type-R(Through 1999 Spec)
    Int-240 dur. / 11.5mm lift
    Exh-235 dur. / 10.5mm lift

    Civic Type-R And Integra Type-R(Integra Type R 2000/01 Spec)
    Int-243 dur. / 11.5mm lift
    Exh-235 dur. / 10.5mm lift


    Can a mod please sticky this. It looks as if this is a real problem.

    A few years ago, Toda had the same problem, and now on toda's website, they have the ways to distinguish between the two.

    just to add to this.. my CTR intake cam came in a pink packaging, directly from honda japan.

    my ITR exhaust cam came directly from honda also in a pink package... I ordered both cams myself and spoke directly with honda to order the ITR one, as it was a special order and took about 2 weeks to get in.

    Ya, all the motor parts I have bought from Honda have come in pink bags, never seen an orange bag, just pink and clear.
