I have a d15b7 and Im going to be doing a cam swap in a few days. Im going to replace the valve seals when Im in there because my engine has 256xxxK on it and it smokes some.

My question is, while browsing Majestic Honda in search of valve seals They offer a Seal A and a Seal B which Im assuming is intake and exhaust sides but they offer two different types of each seal type.

They list it like this:

SEAL A, VALVE STEM (ARAI)
SEAL A, VALVE STEM (NOK)
SEAL B, VALVE STEM (ARAI)
SEAL B, VALVE STEM (NOK)

What does the ARAI and the NOK mean and does it matter? Should I just order 8 Seal As and 8 Seal Bs and not worry about the other part?

Any insight in this would help me out alot.

ARAI and NOK are they makers, ARAI is the better but no longer stocked, you'll get all NOK.

Likely CHEAPER to buy a full gasket kit off ebay.

I know mind came with the correctly colored seals...........which I didn't know and had to look up in the helms.

Black and white, weird.

Whio said that the Ebay kit isn't just reboxed OEM parts?

I know the kit I got was all OEM Honda parts.
