Yes they have some performance cams for your motor, im assuming you have a 2.0 Si with the b20a5 correct? not the b20a3 carb'd.

If so, if you can source yourself some b18b intake cam and a b21a1 exhast cam, you will be golden. The b18b will need a regrind.
Steve, motoxxxman, my personal friend over at Pp.com has a 'COLT cams' group buy going on.

The camshaft on jcwhitney.com is made by lunati(never heard of), but claims to make 28 extra hp @ 5800 RPM and adds 25 ft/lbs. of torque @ 5800 RPM all for $200.

you're gonna have to look at that one again, if you look down at the bottom it says for a ford small block, i dont know why it comes up under prelude but it does, and if you notice the picture is only one cam with 16 lobes, which would most likely be for the 2v heads on a ford 289, 302, or 351

1. No car is worth either of my nuts.
2. I'll gladly accept a free, or cheap-for-me Saleen S7 anyday.
3. I agree with ogsmakdade. H22 has a lot more a/m support and makes more power.

look up www.coltcams.com and send it a set of stock cams to have them reground. probably the best thing you can do. or get a crower regrind. if you use a b18b or b18a cam you need to have the grear end milled ever so slightly so bring a stock b20a* cam to mathc it up if yuo take it to a machine shop

why do people always make the h22 seem like the easier option? it really isnt. yea when youre done dishing out 1700 or so for the motor and tranny and hten you get the drive shafts put together and pay for an ecu conversion and the mounts then it may be. or you can pay 300-500 for some reground camshafts. now yes, the h22 will bring you more power then any cam you put in the b20/b21 but which one is more "reasonable" shall we say? no offense to anyone but im just a little tired of hearing bout the h22 and how its the only way to go wiht a 3rd gen

I agree, people degrade the B20's and B21's because they don't have all the right parts you can put on it. Or because they are underpowered compared to the H22's but still. Any motor can be just as good. Besides, when you pull up to a guy in an H22 and let's say you boosted your B2x's series engine or did some crazy mods and beat him and he says "Is that A Vtec?" Laugh at him and then pass him again
