    vtec killer cams ?

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    has anyone used "VTEC KILLER CAMS"? my buddy was telling me about them and i thought i would ask around. he said these cams make your car use vtec at every rpm. this would obviously make your mpg suffer,but by how much? who makes the cams and how much do they run? would anyone suggest these as a cam upgrade? thnx for the help

    i was under the impression the vtec killers were more of a drag cam. but i guess it really doesnt matter what you use it for.

    if you buy the cams, then you need the toda valve springs, then you need the toda retainers, then you need the toda valves... blah blah blah. Not worth it in my opinion. It sounds like a bad bitch at idle though :)

    The cams do not have a vtec lobe (the middle one). They have much larger primary lobes, vtec sized lobes. So in essence you are always in vtec. Thats why they call them vtec killers. And like pissedoffsol said they are only for the track, definately not daily driver material.
