I didn't know there was a 4 bolt cam gear, but the difference between the 3 and 5 is just how well it holds. 5 Bolts have less of a chance of slipping.

How much faster do you want her? How much money are you looking to spend? What are your goals for the car?

ya the 4bolt was a typo i ment 5..sorry...im im guessing that the 5 bolt is better for non slipping...

i would like to keep my civic all motor..but im looking at turbos as well...but i dont have all that much money...maybe 2-500 at the most...

my friend had also told me about getting a vtec head from a 01 si or jus look for any vtec head...you think you can help...thanks

the only VTEC head that will fit is the the EX, the new SI's use the k20 motor. and the older heads do not fit (i think).

As for the cam gear, go with AEM they use to make 3 bolt patter cam gears, but they progressed to 5 bolt pattern, thank god.

i like the new motors, run mine to hell and back, and it still asks for more. also it's only 3-4 years old, the D16 was 6+ years old before things really started to take off for it (mods that is). the companies are not willing to put the time into research and development yet because the market isn't big enough yet, give a couple more years, and bam.

Actually our motors arent all that bad. If we could get a compnay to r&d a ems for us we would be fine. Hondata has ditched us but I believe aem is still working on one for us.
