Default skunk2 camgear degree question

Just want to know if i zero the s2 camgears would it be the same degree as the stock oem cam gears? It's a JDM H22A, it's stock except for the cam gears (stock camshafts). Any help will be appreciated.

In theory, yes. But they say all aftermarket adjustable cam gears are not exact in their "zero" position as OEM cam gears. It is recommended to either first install the OEM cam gears to get all timing marks lined up properly and them put aftermarket adjustable cam gears on, or "degree" the cams in with the aftermarket cam gears on. I'm not sure about the OEM H22 cams, but I do know that the B16 cams and cam holders have the ability to be "pinned" when timing the engine. If you lined the crank up in the correct position and pinned the cams, you could use whatever aftermarket adjustable cams you wanted and not have to worry about them being zero'd. I would think the OEM H22 cams are setup the same way. You just have to take the valve cover off to find out.

Is it the four holes on the cam cover to pin the cams? Or is it different from the B16?
Note: Not my actual engine, just a picture i got online for reference.

Yeah, should be those four holes. You only need to pin one for each cam. There may only be one place in the camshaft to pin it anyways. Just use a drill bit or something.
