Further Information:

Drag Cartel are easily described as pioneers in the Honda K-Series race scene. Taking the industry by storm several years ago, they've fast become the firm favourite recommendations for K-Series engine builds.

There's a lot required to gain a proper understanding of what's going to be best for your application, we've done our best to compile info into easily digestible tables to see what's going to be best suited for your application. We'll quickly cover the most common applications below, please remember bigger isn't better here. These recommendations are for 95% of builds and for people who also use their car on public roads.

  • K20A/K20Z (Type-R) Builds - If you don't want to upgrade valvetrain, run Drop-In-Cams for solid gains over stock cams. If you want a bit more, run 2.2 Endurance Cams with suitable springs/retainers.
  • K24A Builds with K20 Heads - Same as above, run 3.2s for higher than stock compression - these cams are capable of hitting over 300whp.

We don't recommend any other cams for street use or mildly built engines. As always, feel free to drop us a message to have a chat about what's going to be best for your build.

OG vs. Elite Series

The OG Series covers Drag Cartel's original cam range, with options for close to stock engines, to full blown race engines. The Elite Series is Drag Cartel's new range and is best described as solely for race use, with the biggest cams being reserved for 2.6+ litre strokers used on the drag strip.

Suitable Applications:

These recommendations aren't definitive, to give some examples you could run 3.2s on a stock K24 block, you could run 4.5s on 12.5 compression ratio. These are our own guidelines for what's likely to work best for your particular set-up.

  1. In comparison to most aftermarket K-Series cams I have tried, Mainly Skunk2, these run smoothly and quietly with no alarming valvetrain noises. You can tell they are quality pieces, and they offered great gains with no sacrifices.
