I have been unable to find the lift/duration of the VX camshaft. I thought I saw it on gassavers once.... Do you know this information and could you link it if you find it on gassavers?

I did some searching and couldn't come up with anything on the VX cam specs. I'll look further into it and get to posting the info I find.

Do you know what the difference is in the 92 - 93 ECU, & the 94 - 95 ECU?

I find 2 different part numbers for 49 state models at San Leandro Honda. Are they interchangeable, or do you need to use the correct one for your model year?

It looks like the 92-93 uses the original revision of the ECu and the 94-95 used the the first revision.

I have tested one of the original revisions in my VX and it works fine. I have it for sale too if you need a replacement ECU.

From the Haynes for 96-00 I know these specs for the VTEC-E camshaft in the Civic HX (D16y5):
Lobe height:
Intake:
primary------1.5129 inches
secondary---1.2674 inches
Exhaust-------1.5269 inches

I was unable to find duration/lift values.
I have an HX and would like to install a VX camshaft. I have one already, but it is in Tulsa in storage so I need to know if this is worth pursuing.
Do you have a Haynes or Chiltons that would give the lobe height for rebuild?
Thanks.
