JDM h22a cams

I have a stock or close to stock at least 2000 prelude, would it be worth it to get a set of JDM H22a cams for 40.00, or should i just stick with the Brian Crower cams for 430.00, I mean it is a huge price difference and if the gain is small ( ie i am only going for stage 1 ) ???

Re: JDM h22a cams

Go for skunk2 cams if you are getting cams do not cheap out. And I think it has been decided that JDM cams are the same as our cams or basically the same.

Re: JDM h22a cams

i've heard there can be problems with the oil journals on the skunk2 cams... then again it's been 3 years since i was in the prelude scene, did they address this?

Re: JDM h22a cams

Skunk 2 has the best cams on the market IMO I think they have the least amount of problems of any cams out there really.

Re: JDM h22a cams

I have heard good things about the crowers cams also, they are newer company but they make good stuff and do the testing and research on the stuff they sell, but nothing beats oem or maybe jdm for that matter, it was built to work and if it is any better then the usdm it is more then worth 40.00 dollars, just looking for a little evidence to support it, i have read a little and it seems the best i have come up with is they are more aggressive to they only have a more aggressive vtech lobe

Re: JDM h22a cams

Blake had some problems with BC cams eating his rockers a while ago. I think a couple other people may have also, but they are a pretty good cam. I do not know if the JDM would be worth all the work taking out the old ones and putting in the new ones for that little of a a gain. I do think they are just about identical but you can go for it if you want man.

It wasnt the cams that damaged his rockers. This is a comment that he posted on a youtube video of his after somebody asked if the cams damaged his head

"the cams are not the culprit. The idea behind the rockers and cams getting eaten up in a flaw in the creation of some rocker pads. Some of them have a thinner friction pad and tend to wear out after use. The two metals collide and kill each other for the most part. Do some research on it through honda-tech. It has been discussed a little bit"

Re: JDM h22a cams

Yep. JDM and USDM H22 cams are identical. No use in going after the JDM's.

Haha I actually did do a little research on it over on HT but then I stopped, I believe sometimes it is the cams fault though. I am going to stock up on rockers when I get a new cam

Yeah, but isnt it like so close to ours that it isn't even worth it. I also read something about the SH cams being a little different also and they were like the same as the type s cams. This may be incorrect this just stands out in my mind for some reason

Re: JDM h22a cams

So let me get this straight, people are saying cams ate up rockers when it is not correct, so for example the obx cams might not be as bad as people say, it maybe be partly the rockers...? I am still thinking i will just go with the crowers myself

Haha turbo cams are set up for a built turbo motor, pro series cams are if you want to rev to like 9,000+ rpms for your max horsepower, stick to tuner series cams.
