Default performance camshaft

anybody know if there's a aftermarket Cam for the D15??

i'm wondering if using a better/bigger cam would yield the same or maybe better performance gains on a D15b7 than doing a Mini-Me swap from a D16Z6.

anybody have any ideas?

i'm not sure if there is one available or not. you might be able to use D16Z6 Toda VTEC Killer cams on the D15B7 but idk if you can.
You definitely won't gain as much as you would from a mini-me swap though.

plus most cams you would really need to be tuned to get the most gain from since most cams are aggressive and you would need to adjust your fuel maps for the cam

yeah the d16a6 and the d15b7 have the exact same mold casting just the a6 has a little more aggressive cam in it. if you want a regrind or custom go with exospeed.com
