    Im torn between the AEM cam gears and the Spoon, which are better? Any other cam gears that provide the best result, $$$ not an issue.

    here's my experience with cam gears...

    spoon/toda are badass...as you get what you pay for!

    now, skunk2 gears work well, although under extreme conditions the gears can sometimes expand, causing the timing belt to become tighter and this can cause a motor to seize, bad!!!!!!!!!!

    but this is in rare conditions, and unlikely to happen, although i'd check the tension of your timing belt from time to time...

    aem gears...yes i worry about them slipping, however when torqued correctly they can be reliable...


    for a daily driven setup i'd go with skunk2 gears. personally, i'm going with toda cam gears when i have the money, of course there are others out there including endyn and str which are also supposed to be good. i can't comment on these, because i've never used them.

    I highly recommend Toda's....it's so simple to adjust and gives you the right output on how you want your cams to run.

    Go with Skunk2 that don't cost you nearly as much as spoon and they have 6 bolts. I have one on my car and would highly recommend it.

    Peace*

    the only issue with the skunk2s is that the bolt heads can strip if your not careful .... you shouldnt really be fucking with them all the time any way though ... just get it tuned ... set em and forget em... or replace the bolts with better ones
