^thats my set up. upgraded oem goodness. well, RRC isn't ported, but RRC, tsx cams, TSX TB.....works great. with the rest of the bolt-ons, I/H/E/Pulleys, my car did 250/180. awesome little DD package.
Why did you deem it necessary to install a pulley with only 240? What do you think the stock pulleys are rated at?

this is a great thread but i still have a question..

theres no further modifications needed to get these camshafts running in the k20z3 other than taking the old camshafts out and putting these in?

my next few questions are a little off topic but still relate a little.

right now with just an invidia header and injen cai my duty on datalogs is topping off at 83 around 8300 rpms. i do plan on getting a rrc and tsx throttle body in there before the tsx cams. do i need to upgrade my injectors? and if i put rdx injectors in do i need a fuel pump? this is a daily driver too im not racing it or anything.

thanks for the help!

Not sure if you will absolutely need RDX injectors but I would definitely get them. You do not need a fuel pump though.

Here's a question on the whole tsx cams vs kelford stage 1s. If you were going to go boost in let's say 6 months from the install, would one be better than the other?

Flashpro should be your first initial purchase. great way to free up some restrictions from the factory..

I have been in debate on getting the TSX cams myself. We just dropped an 08 tsx swap in my roomates RSX and he loses power around 7k. Plans on modifying the VTC gear to 47 degrees to extend the range.. Is the powerband still to 8k using the z3 gears?

Would it be bad if you didn't have a flash pro and still got these cams?

So if u use a tsx cam in the stock engine I'm going to lose power after 8k? How do I extend it ?

i would upgrade valve train with skunk2 springs and valves to accomodate the high lobes. also you will need skunk2 aftermarket timing chain tensioner

Hi,
Im interested in purchasing a set of 2006-2008 tsx intake and exhaust cams. Im new to cams, so any help would be appreciated.

Current Modifications:
-2008 Civic Si Sedan
-stock k20 engine
-AEM CAI V2
-Skunk2 header
-Fullrace 3" exhaust
-boomba motor mounts
-flashpro

my questions are:

-are tsx cams drop and go? no other engine mods needed? (aside from flashpro of course)
-how much do these cost brand new?
-whats a reputable place/website to you buy these from?
-how much do they cost to install?
-if you have a similar setup as mine, what performance gains did you make? feel free to share any dyno results
-how will these perform with a stage 2 supercharger?
-how will these perform with a skunk2 intake manifold and throttle body?
-how do these cams effect fuel economy?

thanks for your help. :dance:
