    It needs remapping anyway, just thought of this as an idea :Smile:

    it would be worth using the valvesprings an retainers from the ITR aswell, the DC2 cams are renowned for been bit wild with b16 collets lol

    I ran ITR cams on my standard B16 valvetrain for about 6 months and had no problems whatsoever. Many other people have the same experience with the cams. You can keep using your current valvetrain as long as you don't change the rev limit.

    You won't need to get a remap, you can just drop them straight in. You won't see worthwhile improvements with a remap - none to justify the cost of it anyway.

    With or without the cams tho I need a remap, lol... I was just seeing if it would be worth throwing them in too and seeing if id need to change bits :Tongue:

    You stated you need a remap regardless of the cams

    If you having a remap and you add cams the tuner will map the car with the cams in mind making more power

    If you map the car using your standard cams the car will be mapped to suit the standard cams, as they are less aggresive it won't make as much power

    Just buy the ITR cams and drop them straight in - then get your remap

    Is that true? coz i was thinking of upgrading my EK4 cams with ITR ones and thought this was a worthwhile mod without a remap? any ideas how much work is involved to change cams?
