SKUNK2 PRO STAGE 1+ CAMSHAFT - B VTEC
Gain an extra 15-20 hp with Skunk2 Pro 1+ Camshafts, our professional line of high-lift, racing camshafts for Honda B16/ B17/ B18 VTEC engines. Pro 1+ Camshafts are designed to optimize mid-range and top-end horsepower and torque, with peak power realized at the factory redline. As a result, VTEC crossover is seamless, allowing for the broadest powerband possible. No other line of racing camshafts even comes close to Skunk2 Pro Series. What's more, Pro 1+ Camshafts are also the perfect addition to any high-output, turbocharged engine.
Skunk2 Pro Series Camshafts for Honda B-series engines dramatically increase both horsepower and torque yet retain complete valvetrain stability and exceptional engine response. Ideal for heavily modified engines, Pro Series Camshafts are manufactured from proprietary, high-quality cores, are CNC ground, and feature patent-pending profiles with unique lobe shapes and revolutionary lift, velocity, and acceleration characteristics.
Skunk2 camshafts deliver unparalleled power as a result of continual, extensive development and testing. By utilizing advanced manufacturing techniques and the latest computerized simulation and modeling equipment, Skunk2 camshafts are able to deliver maximum power across the entire powerband. Skunk2 designs and tests all of its camshafts in-house to ensure the highest quality and performance. Each camshaft is manufactured of newly revised chill-cast, billet camshaft blanks that have increased torsional strength, improved durability characteristics, and reduced frictional effects. All Skunk2 camshafts are ground to exact specifications using state-of-the-art CNC cam grinding machines equipped with cubic-boron grinding wheels and feature hardened, wear-resistant lobes and surfaces.
Skunk2 Pro Series Camshafts also feature Fast Ramp and AMAX profile technology, which increases overall performance and results in unmatched response from idle to redline. AMAX technology simply maximizes the area under the lift curve but without compromising reliability or valvetrain stability. Skunk2 profiles feature more duration than competitors’ at lifts above 1mm, resulting in greater efficiency and more power. And thanks to Fast Ramp, the same technology used in Formula One racing, seat timing is reduced, which results in additional cylinder pressure and more torque but without compromising valvetrain longevity.
Skunk2 camshafts designs are the direct result of our years of drag racing and road racing efforts. In addition to each Skunk2 project car and race vehicle, the world top road racing and drag racing teams have relied on Skunk2 camshafts for years.

One of Skunk2's goals is to help educate enthusiasts to better understand their engines and their cars. With topics ranging from four-stroke fundamentals to camshaft installation, we hope to provide a source of information that customers of all types can use to their benefit. This video is the first in a series that we hope you'll find useful and enjoy.... [Read more]
By now everyone's heard that aftermarket, naturally aspirated cams make more power than OEM Honda cams in turbo applications. Evans Tuning sells and uses Skunk2 products on its customers' as well as its own cars, so its only natural that theye conduct testing on a product that they back and sell. Skunk2's Tuner Series and Pro 1+ Camshafts are what they've found works best in forced induction applications. Follow the link to learn more.... [Read more]
AJPP As part of Skunk2 commitment to developing the best parts possible, we’ve remained actively involved in various forms of motorsports through technical partnerships, sponsorships, as well as with our own race vehicles for more than 15 years. Since 1994, Skunk2 continued to secure a number of drag racing and road racing records and championships, including the title of the world first 10-second naturally aspirated Honda. Racing provides us with the data necessary to produce high-performance parts that utilize innovative designs, advanced materials, and cutting-edge manufacturing methods. Today we continue our tradition of creating leading-edge products and subjecting them to rigorous tests, both on the track and the street.
