i might be picking up dc5r cams for decent price, and i ran into a question, should i pay the extra and pick up the bc stg2 or stick with the dc5r cams? if the gains between two are not too much different, i might be picking it up. and should i upgrade the springs retainers and such if i pick up the dc5r cams? i've tried search buttons, and couldnt find any compairsons between the two. thanks for ur inputs o and how do i know if its dc5r cams?? not the 05-06 rsx-s or tsx?? heard they all look very similar. groove mark on the pulsate something is the only way? thanks for ur inputs

overall there is more power to be had with the bc3's. they will have more mid-range power and torque and will make more power than the itr's will. hard to say how much more due to several diff conditions and factors. ive seen type s motors make anywhere from 200-225. on the other hand ive seen bc3's make around 245-250 depending on mods and of coarse conditions. its all on what you want to do with the motor. as for the cam markings to distinguish itr cams from others i am searching still, when i get some info ill post a link :up:
