    93CX w/ B16 Sir II

    Just got Spoon cams for $500 off my friend w/ Aem Cam gears what valve springs do you see are the best for this setup?

    Thinking about the Crowers b/c I can get them cheap.

    Thanks

    Basically got the gears in the deal for nothing so I gonna try to sell em to one of the goons in my area who will buy anything.

    rarely will you tune a cam gear past 5 degrees.. typically they are tuned around 2 degrees either direction...

    and just incase they come loose and try to adjust themselves ... they wont be able to go far enough to do any real damage (just make the car run like ass)

    to make them SEEM better

    if they give you 10 degrees and some of the others only give you 5 then the ones with 10 MUST be better.... even though in all actuality you will NEVER use 10 degrees of adjustment (and if you do your going to brake something)
