The BC0206 is built to full racing spec standards: featuring longer duration profile for added rpm. The camshaft is intended for use with a fully built engine and installation may require further tuning and ECU mods. The BC0206 must be used with the single spring, titanium retainer BC0200 kit.
The racing spec BC0206 fits the SR20DET engine that debuted in the Nissan S14 Silvia in 1993, it was also used in the S15, which featured 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.
Modifying an early S13 SR20DET to incorporate the VTC is a common mod. The BC0206 will fit any S13, S14, S15 engine with VTC.
While VTC is preferred by some, the system is often prone to rattling. Simply replacing the camshafts will not necessarily rectify this issue. This typically requires further modification of parts and precision tuning. A common fix 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.
