Can you guys tell me everything i need to know before getting a performance cam. They are making a new cam for the R18 engine but, i'd like to know everything that goes along with running a more agressive cam. such as things i'd also need to replace or anything like that. Thanks guys

you guys missed the point. I'm not asking about R18 cams in general. I was just asking that if you upgrade your cam do you also need to get better valve springs and things of that sort. I didn't need a giant flame but thanks.

non of those links said anything helpful. other than "I WANT A CAM FOR THE R18!!! ME TOO!!! ME TOO!!! SC2 SHOULD MAKE ONE!!!! YEAHHH!!!! YOU SHOULD OF GOT AN SI!!!"

First of all...search around do some research. Most people on the forums don't like repeating the same thing over and over. :facepalm:

Does anyone even make a cam for the r18 yet? I don't know. Generally with cams you can get drop in cams which reuse your stock valve train or you can get more aggressive cams which require a new upgraded valve train. You'll probably have to upgrade your chain tensioner as well.
