Those look like intake cams to me. Is the back end slotted for a CAS?


Here's the back of a Bp4w exhaust cam also found on VVT motors

It's clear from the photo that there are not, since the last lobe (#1 aft) is basically sitting on the floor.

First-gen NBs had one sensor on the crankwheel, and another about halfway back the head on the intake side. I had this backwards.
The tabs were on the intake cam between #2 and #3 from '01-'05.

Nope, that's wrong too. They're at the rear. I just can't brain today.


From the bottom photo, it sure looks to me like there are sensor tabs between #2 and #3 on both of those cams:





These are very clearly both '99-'00 intake cams.
These are very clearly both '01-'05 intake cams.

Maybe they are both '99 intake cams...

That's a bummer I guess. Anyone ever run 2 intake cams? 😂 any way to run them or just go ahead and find an exhaust cam from a donor? Anyways this is what me and my pal are up to tonight. Just got it dropped in.

That doesn't really help me understand why the motor is facing towards the side of the car. Is he only driving the right-front wheel? If so, it seems that handling would be adversely affected.

Still confused. It's normal for Civics to have their engines put in sideways?

Did some googling, found that this is considered "normal." Apparently, the engine drives the same wheels that do the steering, the differential is built into the transmission, and the wheels at the rear are pretty much just there to keep the back end of the car from dragging along the ground.

Hondas are weird.

Strange machines indeed... I hear Audi does the same thing. But get this, they connect the back wheels to the drive train as well.

?!

Wouldn't that basically just be this, but without the ability to do useful work?

What's that thing that's on the front of that? I think it's that thing that gets done to moms? And a thing that Audis and Hondas do?

Why would you put a FWD engine in a RWD car? That's just stupid.

This.

Spun bearing, wrong cams, who knows what other surprises lay ahead.

Sometimes, life hands you a lemon. Unless life also hands you water, sugar, and ice, you gotta just toss that lemon over the fence and move on.

Well time and money isn't an issue for this build so if I have to take time to get the right stuff and find an exhaust cam and get it all refreshed that's what I'm doing the crank is first on the list but until I get it to the machine shop its gonna be cleaning and more cleaning
