Skunk2 are also sweet.

A lot of people like Toda and Spoon because they're steel, but I haven't had any problems with the aluminum ones.

Never used them, but Unorthodox always makes badass stuff, but for the price you can probably get the Toda or Spoon ones.

I have the old school AEM 3-bolts on my GS-R and they never slipped on me even though everyone told me they were going to. I just bought the new STR cam gears with the funky markings for my LS/VTEC. They look awesome but the markings take a little getting used to at first.

hehe yeah I agree with ya mike on that one thats why yo just leave it at 0 and get custom made crank wheel and trigger and tune it with your stand alone. Click the image to open in full size. The only reason I went with skunk is the 6 bolts compared to aem and gem's. any six would have worked for me .-pdang


heres my experience with h series cam gears,
aem 3 bolts sliped a little,
crowers are nice but expensive,
skunks old ones had to hammer pretty hard onto cam,
unorthodox really nice but once again the price is outrageous.

After using and looking at quite a few cam gears...this is my opinions.

STR, Unorthodox, Spoon, Toda, Endyn, GE are all very good designs and I would have no problems using them on any of my future engine builds or recommending them to friends for their projects. Right now I 'm using a set of STRs becuse of the economical price versus features. But I think if you went with any of the above gears you would be happy.

AEM makes other great products but I personally steer clear of their gears mainly because of the three bolt design. Does it slip or not?.....who really knows, but I'm not gonna chance it on my engine.

I'm not too fond of AEM gears after seeing how they don't even line up right for my engine (89 Integra).

Click the image to open in full size.

The black marks are where the timing marks are on the STOCK gear.

That, and the gear is about .080" too thick in the center of it. I can't put the timing cover back on. Click the image to open in full size.
