K20A / K20Z 8620 Steel Billet CAMSHAFTS
The newest engine in the Honda tuning community. The "K Series" is Honda's mass produced version of the roller rocker valve train assembly found in the S2000. Less friction, more rpm potential, faster action cam profiles...this engine has untapped potential. First introduced in the JDM Integra Type-R in 2001, this engine put out a respectable 220HP @ 8000 rpm straight from the factory (DC5). The K20A also sees service in the JDM Civic Type-R, using the same compression and cam profiles. The first USDM production model was the K20A2 found in the 02-04 RSX-S. Other engines featuring the same head configuration include the K24A2 (TSX) that features a 9.114" deck height, the K20Z1 in the 05-06 RSX-S that includes various JDM Type-R add-ons like cams, throttle bodies, higher compression and Honda's answer to the tuning crowd, the K20Z3 found in the 2006-up Civic Si.

After years of high end race and dyno testing, BC has released a line of 8620 steel billet camshafts that deliver the ultimate in high performance. Made from aerospace grade, 8620 steel billet material and CNC ground on state-of-the-art cam grinders, these BC cams deliver the utmost in rigidity at extended rpm range while reducing possible valve float. These are the best cams money can buy and are now available for all stages…including the popular Stage 2 all motor profile.

No valve timing events due to variable intake cam. WARNING: If running a late model cylinder head (after 2004), you may need to purchase BC2940 keepers to accommodate the BC2010 or BC2011 retainers. Honda changed the keeper groove angles, therefore your stock keepers/locks may not fit the BC retainers properly causing potential damage.
