BC street spec camshafts are designed for easy plug and play application. The BC0205 boasts a 264 duration for nice street manners and slight lope at idle for an excellent all-purpose use. The stage 2 BC cams with a 264* duration let your SR20det breath freely which results in big power gains from ~3800rpm and up. If you are looking to wake up your SR20 while keeping a strong mid range power band these are the perfect cams for you.

The BC0205 fits all of the RWD SR20DET engines that debuted in the Nissan S13, S14 and S15 Silvia starting in 1991, it was also used in the S15, which feature a 6 speed transmission instead of the 5 speed used in previous models. The revised SR20DET engine featured a larger turbo charger and variable timing camshaft (VTC). The variable timing cam of the S14 and S15 SR20DET’s boast a 20-degree advance on the intake cam to provide more torque at lower RPM’s.
While VTC is preferred by some, as the system ages it is often prone to rattling. Simply replacing the camshafts will not necessarily rectify this issue. The easiest fix for an old VTC is to replace the VTC cam sprocket and solenoid. Another common option to eliminate the unwanted noise from the later SR20DETs is to remove the VTC using a conversion kit. This allows the modified engine to use the BC0201, or any other, camshafts for the S13. Here at Brewed we prefer to maintain the VTC whenever possible BUT in the case of high compression engine with high lift cams we sometimes us a non VTC s13 intake cam and sprocket.

To get the most out of your BC 264 cams for the SR20det we highly recommend using the SR20 BC springs and Ti retainers to prevent valve float and allow you to safely rev to 8000+rpm. We have been using BC cams in 95% of our SR20det builds, BC cams simply produce reliable power on each and every SR20.
