need help ??

so i changed the cams in my b16 to gsr and full race gears and the car has less power than before
maybe because the valves are not opening all the way need to adjust rocker arms if so what size feeler gage mm i need to use
and do i adjust the intake cam on the back side of the cam tors the front of the car
and the exhaust tours the back of the car
lmk thanks guys

it shouldn't have lost power at all no adjustments should be needed for just gsr cams. check the timing again

I'm not sure, but don't B18c1 cams have less lift then b16 cams?

That could be your problem with the less power.

im willing to bet your timing is off a tooth or more but valve lash on a gsr is 0.15-0.19mm intake 0.17- 0.21 ex
