I did a search but found nothing, is there any positive results from doing this??? I was told that the TSX intake cam is less aggressive than the type S but that the type s exhaust cam is less than the TSX...
Just wondering if there's some cheap power to be found in this..I just got a TSX motor and my friend grenaded his Type S by dropping valves..I'm taking some of the parts like the VTC and he told me about the cam...

I am doing it with my motor. I have also been told that it will give you a little more power but have yet to see it myself.

just so you know though when you change over to the RSX-S cam it is suggested that you switch out to the RSX-S or the IPS OEM recomended valve springs just to be sure that the valvetrain can handle the more aggresive cam. This includes springs retainers and the valve seats. I was also told you may have to replace the valve seals at the same time. not to sure on that last one though...

thank for the info Jon, I planned to upgrade the valvetrain while I attempted this any way to be safe... I figure you have to change the seals cause when you remove the seats/ locaters you'll probably mess them up anyways trying to get the seats out... at least thats what happened when i had to replace a seat with my B-series head.. Keep me posted on your progress, I plan to have my engine in by next week..

i already have ITR cams in my cousins k24 motor, car runs good, smoooth as hell.. so far no problems with valvetrain, i mean the stock tsx exhaust cam is bigger than the ITR in both primary lobes and vtec lobe, so why wouldnt the valvetrain hold up against puny ITR cams?
