Default D17 Cam.....?

Ihave heard alot about crower cams in my few months of talking to people about my civic. Is it worth it to do something like that? And what all would be required to do it?

Is there any significant gains in doing this? And how will it affect the sound?

i was looking in to cams as well....i heard it can be anywhere from 20-35 hp, not sure if thats true. crower and skunk2 would be the best bet i think

no...unless you get a real big cam, then you might have to get different sized valves. there is a do it yourself cam swap write up on here in the DIY section.
