I read the articles section and saw that 'its a waste' to get CTR/ITR cams. Does anyone have actualy experience with the cams w/ adjustable gears? My ITR's with AEM gears will be here tomorrow morning and the car is getting tuned Thursday. I've heard people gaining upwards of 15-20whp once tuned, while this article is saying 10 tops. I better not be throwing away $600 for 8-10 hp. Thanks for any info.

It's not a waste, but if you payed $600 for a pair of stock ITR cams that's a little high. I think what the article meant to say is that it's a waste to pay more for CTR cams because the only difference is 3 degrees duration on the intake cam for 97-99 ITR only. The exhaust cam between CTR/ITR is the same as is the 00-01 ITR/CTR intake cam.

Expect about 10whp out of them, if someone said they got 20whp gain out of switching ITR cams in their GS-R I would ask to see their dyno charts. Talk is cheap, I've found that 75% of people talking about dyno numbers have never even seen a dyno before.

I don't know much about the non-VTEC cam upgrades. Crower 402 and 403 are the only ones I've actually heard much about. You may want to check those out.

For ITR/CTR cams check acuraautomotiveparts.net, I think I remember them selling 00-01 ITR/CTR cams for $220 each or so.

Got any of Skunk Stage 1 vs. Toda As?
no because they are considered in the same group or category if you look at their cam specs in the cam spec article. A person shopping for cams would not dyno 2 of the same kinds of cams in the same engine. They usually upgrade. So unless there was a great cam test which would take days if not weeks since you must tune after each cam install on the same engine, you are rarely going to see people show a dyno of going from 1 cam to another in the same spec range.
