Awesome.  If you can see the color bands its a generally good way to ID them.  The exhaust cam is the one with the slot to drive the distributor, so it doesnt matter that there are some colors the same, they are on different Intake/exhaust combos.

On a side note, there have been 2 Sr20ve engines that have been found to have a N1 intake cam, and 16ve exhaust cam in them, and have been engines that have come direct from CVT equipped cars from wreckers.  We dont know the answer to this yet, whether someone has just got wires crossed on the history of the engines or what, but so far it looks like they may have come from Japan like this.

maybe this is the answer why some engines produce better power than others maybe nissan japan had spare left over parts to use up?

I dont think so, i think there is just good ones and bad ones for some reason, but it would be nice if this was all it was.  Toms P11 made great power when it had stock p11 cams from memory.

Well if you look at the specs the N1 & SR16VE exhaust cam is very similar.. So its a much cheaper upgrade with almost the same power gains buying a n1 intake and poping in a Sr16ve ex cam

shows how poor the sr16ve low lobes are! Also shows how good a 20v engine/cams are. such a shame they put that engine/gearbox in such a beast p12. i guess moving more towards luxury. I guess 20v cams are also a great upgrade on a stock sr20ve as well, if you found some considerably cheaper than n1's?

20v cams are no longer available new which is a pain, they are awesome turbo cam too (20v in and vet ex also is a beast combo)

20v cams were cheaper new than n1s but impossible to find new now, I rung endless amount of performance nissan dealers in the us to find the last sets I had for sale.
