R18 Tuner Series Camshafts Stage 2

Gain an extra 10+ hp with Skunk2’s Tuner Series Stage II Camshaft for the Honda R18, our premier line of high-performance camshafts for Honda’s R18A1 engines. Tuner Series Stage II Camshafts are designed to optimize horsepower and torque on mildly modified engines and are the result of Skunk2’s years’ worth of drag racing and road racing efforts. No other line of high-performance camshafts even comes close to Skunk2’s Tuner Series.

Skunk2 camshafts deliver unparalleled power as a result of continual, extensive development and testing. By utilizing advanced manufacturing techniques and the latest computerized simulation and modeling equipment, Skunk2 camshafts are able to deliver maximum power across the entire powerband. Skunk2 designs and tests all of its camshafts in-house to ensure the highest quality and performance. Each camshaft is new, not regrind, and manufactured from high-strength, hollow, iron-alloy cores featuring cutting-edge profiles. All Skunk2 camshafts are ground to exact specifications using state-of-the-art CNC cam grinding machines equipped with cubic-boron grinding wheels and feature hardened, wear-resistant lobes and surfaces.

Skunk2’s Tuner Series Camshafts for R18A1-based engines feature Fast Ramp and AMAX profile technology, which increases overall performance and results in unmatched response from idle to redline. AMAX technology simply maximizes the area under the lift curve but without compromising reliability or valvetrain stability. Skunk2’s profiles feature more duration than competitors’ at lifts above 1mm, resulting in greater efficiency and more power. And thanks to Fast Ramp, the same technology used in Formula One racing, seat timing is reduced, which results in additional cylinder pressure and more torque but without compromising valvetrain longevity. The Stage II R18A1 camshafts utilize the stock VTEC economy lobe. This mean you do not sacrifice MPG while cruising, your MPG will remain the same under cruse loads. The Stage II cam also provides more lift and duration, and is a drop in cam that requires no spring or retainer upgrade. To extract the utmost power a tuning device such as Hondata would be required.

so i just bought this cam yesterday i couldn't wait and i just called procivic on the phone and ordered it . now my dilemma is does anyone know if it comes with instructions on how to install it. i been reading on how to remove and install the factory cam and it seems like a really long process involving the removal of many other things, so i dont know whether i should venture doing it myself or pay a show to do it.
Thats gonna have to wait a while im deployed right now and wont be installing this until I get back home or if I find someone to install it while in away then I will dyno it when I come back home. Not only that I got a couple of other goodies waiting to be installed plus a couple of others im going to buy
so i called a shop and they quoted me 500 bucks to install this , does it seem fair ?
Im gonna call a couple other shops around and see what they tell me , im itching to do it myself but at the same time I dont want to **** anything up
If anyone knows a shop near eastern nc new bern area that they trust , or if any of you guys have experience and might want to help ....maybe there will be lots of beer and burgers as an incentive ....
I called another shop and they quoted me closed to 1000 dollars soo idk im gonna keep calling around
Ok so now legit Im getting a little frustrated with this, I called a bunch of shops , some quited me anything from 800 to 1200 to install the cam , and some just straight up told me they wont do it, now I want to do it myself , however ive never done this and dont want to **** something up, my mechanical skills are rather sufficient but I dont want to risk ******* up my cars timing, even though it seems easy to time. A couple of people have told me they would help me installing the parts that I have waiting for me at home so if anyone is interested in helping and lives near eastern nc ill be doing this when I come back in march the help would be greatly appreciated
Do you know any honda specialty shop near north carolina ? Or you can just come and help me :D
Its sooooo far though ...... I live in nc that would be quite a drive , I might get pcs to yuma nextbyear though

Damn dude thats near ashville !!!! I live all the way on new bern thats about 6 hours to drive, hmmm idk I might do it depends on the price , if anything I can go to kmod or a couple of shops in Fayetteville but I would love to go ashville that place is gorgeous plus I know a great bbq place around there
