so some of you may remember my thread last week about not being able to get the motor to time, well finally we got it timed but now on to my next problem :facepalm: from what it sounds like my go power dual valve springs are binding on each other.. like the two springs rub on each other as i turn the car over, i could be totally wrong though, heres a video so you guys can tell me what you think.. thanks

Re: Valve Spring Bind?

hey so I'm over here from 8thcivic cause i can't get any straight answers over there really.. so i just put skunk2 stage 2 version 3 cams in along with a go power valve train (i know you guys hate skunk over here lol) anyways i went to start the car for the first time today and it cranked over but wouldn't start.. motor made a loud ticking noise but I'm mainly concerned with it not starting. some on 8th said i may not be timed correctly cause i think my chain may of slipped or something..some said it could be because I'm on a stock map and I'm just not getting a enough fuel to start. i did everything right to my knowledge..no corners cut or nothing. ANY input would be great. right now my plans to just plug a scan tool up and see if i get any codes for the timing or cam sensors..
We don't hate skunk, we just tell it how it is.

actually its not chain slap!! my dumb ass did not put the new valve seats go power provided for me when installing the dual valve springs, the stock seats aren't able to work with the duals so thats what the ticking is i believe. although after watching those vids it does sound some what similar.. i should watch my chain and actually see if it is doing what the ones in the vids do.. has anyone found a fix to the chain slap from the cams? really really wishing i woulda just got go power errythang haha

haha leemoney, i apologize for doubting you. it wasn't i didn't think you were right, i just didn't want to believe i had to buy new cams but your 100% right.. not gonna run my car on these cams, cars way to new to blow the motor on some junk cams. shitty situation, senior in high school with a part time job scraping pennys to fund this "build" and i find out i have to buy new cams. damn. any suggestions on what i should pick up, thats not crazy priced but still a "stage 2" spec

what leemoney said. buy cams from dc, ips, or another reputable company. do not use skunk2 cams unless you want to rebuild a new motor with good cams


why not get 06+ tsx cams

i paid 600 new for them.. I'm pissed. shoulda done my research before though so its pretty much my fault for jumping into it with out reading up on it..i was just looking at some drag cartels but its like 1000 for a set if I'm right.. i just purchased so much ish to go along with my cams that i don't have that kinda cash layin around. even sold my jordan retro sneaker collection to fund some of this :facepalm: anyways, as for tax cams i kinda want something with a little more power i wanna make 230-240ish
