    B18c4 cams from an MB6 cams won't be no good.

    they do give gain's but its only 2hp over standard. Get some teg or EK9 cam's but you would need the valve train to run them

    EK9/ITR cams are a decent enough upgrade. The stock ECU and therefore stock b16 valvetrain is fine

    Im running EK9 cams, stock valvetrain and Stock ECU, on B16A, getting very good response, mid range, top end, quick acceleration, and very loud VTEC.

    C4 cams for boost


    C6 or B16B cams for nasp:cool:


    B16B cams have something liek 2 degrees more duration over ITR's IIRC

    EK9 cams have the same high-lobe profile as the ITR, but the primaries are larger on the EK9 cams (b16a size). The primaries are smaller on the ITR cams for whatever reason, its quite clear from inspection of the cams. So EK9 cams would be best for a B16A
