    aint they a downgrade, I've heard of people using b16 cams and head on b18c4 but not the other way round

    I think they have a longer duration so maybe notice a slight gain? I wouldn't go out and buy some as theyre not worth the money for the power gain, but if you already have some then fit them!

    Correct me if im wrong anyone!!

    as far as i know they are the same - if anything the primaries on the B18C4 cams are smaller if ITR cams are anything to go by.

    C4 gsr cams are more agressive, however, not much point in all honesty, would just go for ITR ones.
