Crower cam and valve install

Pretty soon i will be installing Crower valves and a Crower cam. Should i take any serious pre-caution before doing this. I will be installing it at in my garage with my dad. Any tips would be appreciated.
I have a d16y7 engine non-vtec. anyone know if they make that application?

Re: Crower cam and valve install

I know they make it for the dohc non/vtec, but I'm not sure about the sohc. Crower is the best for the dohc non/vtec if it matters.

Crower only produces cams for SOHC VTEC motors. You can send in your stock cams for a regrind though.

I can only assume this was a misprint. Crower makes camshafts for the DOHC VTEC/nonVTEC motor. I know the model number for the non/VTEC stage two's is 62403-2!

My bust, I'm thinking about the B18 engine.

Re: Crower cam and valve install

he has a SOHC non-VTEC motor, they only make cams for SOHC VTEC motors. You seem to misread a lot of shit that is posted on here.

I didn't say that they didn't make cams for DOHC motors.

Oh my god. Millions of parts fora honda, but no valve springs for a non-vtec. Great auto industry. So i guess i only have one choice left, go oem with the valve springs

Re: Crower cam and valve install

Motor itself shouldn't cost more than $3-500. Anymore than that and you are getting ripped off cause $500 is on the high side.
