Default Opinions on an adjustable cam gear...

I searched and couldn't find a post about this.

Looking for opinions on a good quality brand adjustable cam gear for a D16Y8. I was gonna go with the AEM, but I've seen one too many horror stories of the middle snapping free from the connection points. Could have been wrong install, but I'm not sure I want to take a chance with that.

So far what I've seen as far as quality goes, is Golden Eagle and Bisimoto (maybe, if they even make it anymore)

Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. Thanks.

I got an ebay brand when I had my 4 door and never had an issue with it. just replace the adjustment screws with better ones.

That makes me lean towards a no on Skunk2. I just want a solid, reliable, awesome cam gear that I know won't end up destroying my motor due to poor build quality.

I noticed most people never adjust them on a dyno. And they will leave the cover off.
