Website says $680 a pair, plus $100 for custom grinds. Spring/retainer sets were $421. This is some more info. I got from Brian Crower (he's pretty quick at responding), does his explanation of the lack of Type-S cam problems make sense?:
"H22 cam info...
Stage 1 = factory springs OK, factory idle lobes.
Stage 2 = factory springs OK, up to stock rev limit, recommend Crower/Eibach spring
#68187 if over. Hopped up idle lobes, but still daily drivable. Slight lobe at idle.
Stage 3 = Aftermarket springs required. Rough idle.
Note: Our spring #68184 will be available mid April.
As far as they Type S core problem goes, since we use our own cores and maintain factory
base circle, there is no rocker wear issues to worry about. The Stage 1 has more
aggressive ramp speeds than the factory intake and exhaust VTEC profiles, but duration
and lift are similar.
Thanks for your interest in Crower,"
The questions from me to him:
"First, I saw no requirements for upgraded springs and retainers like is
