need help with cams fast!

hey fellow luders, sorry this is urgent because the car needs to be running by wednesday, but i purchased new crower stage 1 camshaft for my h22a4 prelude. Now ordinarily you would think this would be easy but ive hit a halt. Now for my car the distributor is hooked up to the exhaust camshaft. now the new crower cams have the distributor notch on the intake labeld cam do i simply install the distributor on the intake? or put the intake labeld cam in the exhaust side? ive tried calling crower all day but i only get there answering machine anyways help is appreciated guys- thanks

Re: need help with cams fast!

wow i've never heard of that, that's ridic. no, def don't switch the cams, and you can't really install the dizzy on the intake cam either.

is there a part number? you might have the wrong cams! cuz i know civics and teggies have their dizzies on the intake.

Hmm.. now thats just odd. I'd wait til someone here can chim in or til someone picks up from Crower. Better to do it right the first time.

x2.

I was going to say you have the wrong cams, or the fellas at crower mislabeled them.

Re: need help with cams fast!

how are you determining that the cam with the notch in it is designated for the intake cam and not the proper exhaust cam?

i can tell that the distributor notch is on the intake camshaft becuase its clearly labeled... and i'd like to think that a company such as crower wouldnt mislabel their product, and i also got the tuning card for the h22 so makes me think the cams are right??? idk if there not the right ones im gonna be pissed as F***

oh and just verrified the part numbers on the card that comes with the cams and on the website... there the right cams! guys WTF! LOL WTF! mislabeld? i wish crower would pick up their damn phone

that's so weird. i mean, i could understand putting a sticker for H22 cams on a B16 box, but the fact that it's stamped/engraved into the cams, i'm wondering how many other cams are indeed mislabeled
