It's new billets no regrinds here. Also might need to modify the heads since they enlarged the journal bearing area

I spoke with them. TB is a cool guy and took his time on the phone. I will eventually get grinds from them, though I'm not sure when.

Just recently? The reason I am asking is there is a shop here that does head work and they told me they go through these guys. I have never heard of them so I was curious if anyone on here has gone to them before.

They're the guys with 400+ HP na j series drag cars. I think they are the only true experts when it comes to the j series and cams.

Yeah I saw there drag Integra that can be daily driven. It's pretty sweet except for the cut hood.

Only for the Race cams. Street and Street/Strip are drop-in with no upgrade necessary; spring/retainer upgrade necessary; respectively.

No. At one point Webcams was still doing Bisimoto regrinds.

TB Motorworx outsourced their Billet cams also, thought I saw somewhere that is was Crower. Don't know who does their regrinds.

I contacted them and they quoted me a grand for stage one regrinds. $150 if I don't send my cams in.

While 2k is not a bargain, it is Much cheaper than trying to develop a cam on your own for an All motor set up.


The R & D has already been done. Start a "race" cam set up like this from scratch and see how much you spend.

TB Motorworx has helped develop these profiles from drag racing. They know what works in regards to an all motor set up.

They have brought the "oversized" cam bearing journal, in the Race cam, to the market. Not sure who pioneered the oversized bearing journal but, what matters is that it is available. I do know that thinjim was one of the guys who experimented with it and got it to work. Although, the rocker arm set up is the trick for the Race cam set up.





** It would be nice to see a HP/TQ gain comparison between TB Motorworx Street/Strip cam versus the TL-s or RL cam set up.

That is true, but I am sure most of us use our car as DD? Hot cams are not great on a street car.

If you want regrinds contact webs cam directly. Just make sure they measure the centerline before they start cutting.

You have to take "stage one" with a grain of salt. I'd compare it to slightly under if not directly to stage 2 bisi, with better R&D

A grand really isn't too bad, for the top guys in the industry.

We went over specs. on the call and ^ is true. Bisi stage 1 is pretty damn close to stock, slightly more duration.

TB goes through Crower to do all cams, but these are TB's specs. being used.

I was just quoted this from motorworx "the valves are $576 and the springs and ret is $550." That seems a little expensive. What would you guys recommend going with for valves, springs and retainers?

I bought the FD from them as did Simione. They seem pretty knowledgeable, except for the fact that the FD I got is not 3.80 lol. It's 3.94 according to the Gearing Calculator, which is the same as the new Accord 6AT.

TB Motorworx has a beast J series drag car and definitely know how to set up a J. Jeff Evans also has a beast J series drag car and can do cams as well. IMO, if you are going to get cams, try either of these 2 and you can't go wrong. Wouldn't hurt to talk to Jeff Evans and see what kind of pricing he can do as well and he is a MONSTER tuner.

I emailed Evans tuning and was told they have nothing available for the j series as of now but they are in the works on getting something for distribution.

Speak with TB and ask him to test them. I wont divulge the pricing he provided me but it was a steep discount to test them. At this moment I am not going to get cams.

Blew my j30 on the way to work. Car wont crank so maybe I should build a j35a5. Got a p0404 so either clogged cat, egr, jumpped timing, or something that would cause low performance exhaust and no crank

^ I agree 1200 bucks is a pretty penny to spend on something without a dyno
