every motor is different. it is hard to tell sometimes what cams may make X more or less over or under another.

remember that people. Dont get fixated on a number either. go by how the car feels

Myself and a couple members on 8thcivic had problems with them. My car wouldn't start after they were installed so everyone chalked it up to bad cam grounds. Replacement set was sold to a clubrsx member and he ended up making 260/200 on an oem tsx motor. -___- Blueprint = zero quality control.
