Re: h22a type s cams

Type s are barely any different than stock, I don't know why you would waste your time or money.

Re: h22a type s cams

Put the stock cam and the Type S cams side by side and you will notice the difference in the lobes for vtec...

Re: h22a type s cams

So you spend $40 and a couple hours for maybe 1-2 hp in vtec... Not worth it, I said they were barely different than stock not the same as stock, plus they are the same as the USDM SH cams I believe

Re: h22a type s cams

yes it has a bigger vtec lobe, there is no way that I know of to see if they are type s cams without comparing them.. I never seen any cams with a symbol or something on it to see the difference or knowing what kind of cam it is...

Re: h22a type s cams

you will see some gains but not alot. If you get the car tune for the type s cam it would help out alot though.. A friend of mine swap some type r cams in his gsr and saw some gains at higher rpms so you may see the same results..

Re: h22a type s cams

The ONLY way to tell for sure is to measure the lobes. That's it.

no and no.

type s are pretty close to skunk 2 tuner stage 1 cams. not quite as good they make a few hp less.

they are not the same as usdm sh cams.



also op unless you have a hook up they prolly arent type s

type s cams are not that cheap.

edit: you cant run type s cams on the stock valve train iirc

Re: h22a type s cams

You will notice a slight horsepower gain, well worth the $40, If you have the jdm h22a head you DO NOT have to upgrade valve springs and retainers, only usdm models do you have to upgrade springs and retainers etc.

Re: h22a type s cams

the type-s cams are made from some magnesium alloy which stated above, should give the camshaft a bluish tint. Check out pictures of the type-s cam and you'll notice it.

Re: h22a type s cams

99-01 ludes have stiffer valve springs than older models because they have slight more aggressive cams

as well as type R and S have stiffer valvesprings because of cams so if youre not gonna change the springs it may cause you some problems in the future

Re: h22a type s cams

So if i put them in an a1 head then i need to put at least a4 springs in? Or does it not work like that? I can get the cams for $275 which i believe to be a good price, yes?
