Cool AEM True time Cam gear or...

Hi guys im looking to get either the AEM tru time cam gear or the Skunk2 Cam gear... both of which are good names but i found this web site that has the Skunk2 for 99 bucks... and the AEM for 114
AEM= http://www.performancepartswholesale...ears&brand=aem

Skunk2= http://www.nopionline.com/nopistore/...A%20CRX%201988

But i have know AEM to be a better product only cuase i have seen them on many 4th gen civics and CRX's but quite the opposite with Skunk2... I just want to know what the better product... cuase im purchasing a Exospeed SR909 now...and i know i will be an adjustable cam gear to go along with that purchase...

Cool

yea totally... i have noticed that Skunk2 has a 5 bolt pattern... but the AEM only has 3... but what i am truly looking for is the way they are designed... the timing markings on the cam gear itself... you know?

I have the skunk2 and I haven't had any problems, I think the skunk2 is better because it has a 5 bolt, so there not much of a chance that it will ever slip!!!

the 3 bolt aem will eventually loosen. They do have a 5 bolt redesigned model available for some cars.

tighten it down properly. has anyone *EVER* actually heard of 3-bolt AEM gear coming loose? Either way, they have a new 5 or 6 bolt unit for the same price as the old 3-bolt gear.

I'll have a 96-00 Edelbrock cog coming in on Monday, I'm just waiting to see if its keyed correctly or not. Its 5 bolt, and can be found for about 110-115, just another alternative.
