    ive got a stock b16a2 in my sol, and if i were to get some buddy club spec 3 cams what is the minimum compression i should be running?????

    also with the cams i will have buddy clup dual springs, cam gears, skunk2 titanium retainers and 1 mm oversized flat valves, and also a mild port and polish.

    thanks in advance

    I'd say 10 and up would be fine. The III's are more equivalent to ITR cams, and the III+ are suppose to make a little more.

    If you're running larger valves, then you definitely want to clay the motor to make sure there's no contact. The shop should be able to do it for you(if they're building the whole engine for you).
