    b18cr cam question

    hi, im just doing a few mods to my b16a motor (da) and i have a pair of b18cr cams lying around and was wondering if i can use the type r cams with the stock itr gears or b16a cam gears ? will this work or will i have to buy some adjustable cam gears?

    Instead of out right giving you the answer since its been covered so many times and a search would tell you for sure, here is how you would find out.

    Does it have the same amount of teeth, is the gear the same size, is the key way in the same place relative to the up arrows.
    Put them side to side and you should be able to figure it out.
