Re: to cam or not to cam

Ur gonna want cams for the most horsepower u can get. Just build the head right to withstand the upgrade. I.E. retainers and valves springs so on and so forth. I've never personally been in a car with an h22 with upgraded cams. Though i have been in an integra that had them. Made a nice improvement.

@ 98vtec. What set of cams would you recommend for a daily driven 97 Type SH? I will of course installed all necessary components to make the cams work with valve-train.

Re: to cam or not to cam

i would recommend stage 2 pro cams naturally aspirated.!!
stage 3 will run like crap honestly dont even run nice in turbo cars they are over kill. look into brian crower its what i went with my buddys went skunk2 so i have a bit of knowledge with both brian crower will run you just under $500.
skunk 2 will run you $700 make sure you do all your research on lift and duration to know what rpm bands you want to make power and if your going to run 9000rpm or just 8500rpm then you will need with no question dual titanium springs n retainers if you run stage 2 cams of any make.!! a timing belt would not be a bad idea at that time to replace too. look into a p28 ecu chipped on s100 or get an s300 if you really want to make some power out of it. exactly about how much power are you trying to acheive thats a very important question to ask before looking into cams also
