I believe there is no way to tell visually because they bare no distinguishable outward markings on them.denisfern said:Can anyone tell me how i can recognize a type R cam. I wan to buy a set but i want to be sure i am not scammed and given Type S cams.... pls anyone ?
I believe (but am not certain) that type-R cams have a double ring on the short side of the cam. Type-S cams have a single ring.denisfern said:I was trying to buy these cams off of someone but if there is no way of telling what i am getting, then i am going to have to buy them brand new. geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeez....
Damn manny you on here too? let me find out the K-bug bit you lol. I would also like to know since i may be purchasing some R cams but dont want to get scammed for them...chameleon said:damn should have taken some pics of them when i installed them in a tsx motor this weekend, i did inspect the two and the vtec lobes are definitely bigger, also something to note is that is you look where the tsx cams had the cam gear bolt there is a lil crevice that says "12.5" in it. the jdm cams didnt have that so im not sure if its a usdm thing, i wish i could remember the letters and #s that were printed on the intake cam gear, but the markings on the cams themselves were the same.
Dude, here's a real easy way. It should have a nice PRC stamp on there somewhere if it's type R or PRB if it's type S.denisfern said:Can anyone tell me how i can recognize a type R cam. I wan to buy a set but i want to be sure i am not scammed and given Type S cams.... pls anyone ?
