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.
