    I can get the Toda Spec B camshafts with Type r valvesprings and port flow retainers for $750


    Is this a good deal? Also what do you guys think about using the type r springs rather then the toda springs like they recommend? These cams will be going into a b20 vtec and only revving to about 8k max, what do you guys think about clearance issues? The head has been milled because of a blown head gasket.

    Thanks
    Khai

    i wouldn't run those springs with those cams... i know what deal your'e talking about, i wanted to buy the cams themselves :) get it and sell the retainers and springs, pick up some toda springs oem retainers and toda sprockets and call it a day

    EDIT.. you neet to switch the inner springs...see 2 posts below after reading this one..lol

    Yes thats a really good deal.. I ran that exact spring combo with my toda b's for 2 years with no problems except breaking a timming belt in the end. I also ran them in my first 2ltr with the original IB spec pistons 7cc , pistons were at 0 deck with no clearance issues at all. I put down 220 with that setup

    OPPS I read it wrong, you need to switch your inner springs to portflow as well. So itr outers with portflow inners
