Are all aftermarket cam gears the same for the 88-00 civic or should there be 2 different ones? One for the 88-95 and another for the 96-00? Like Skunk2 and Rage. Skunk says their one for a d16 is like universal and fits all d15/d16 engines. But Rage has one for a 88-95 and another for 96-00. Seems like Rage is right. They're not all the same fitting are they?

they are the same size, same number of teeth, everything.

the timing is different between the 88-95 and 96-00. if you search. I started a thread a long time ago and you can see the differences between the two. if you use the 88-95 on a y8, you have adjust it 4.5 degrees to be at 0.

Who will chime in with the "How did you get the 4.5 Degree measurement??" :)
from some people who have more time and like to do math more than me. transex is who I'm thinking it was off of the top of my head. but I think it's really 4.75 or 4.25, but 4.5 is close enough to get it running and since the markings on the gears aren't 100% exact, that's why I say 4.5.
