of course i want to get what ever will give me the most power without hurting the motor but im scared of getting something with too big of a lobe that will cause clearance issues. the block is the k24a4 out of a honda element and i am having to do alot of work to get it going including replacing the pistons. and the head had to be milled. so i dont know how much clearance there will be

Beastly. I wish I knew enough about my engine to have stuff like this done to it
Research it. A year and a half ago when i bought this car i couldnt tell you the diff between a wrench and a rachet(sp). My dad taught me that you learn by doing sooo.....

the first project i took on was a tranny swap. then i pulled the motor and put a k24 in it when the k20 blew. Now im taking apart the K20 to build it up with the k24 bottom end. In the begining i knew nothing. After getting in and doing and reading i can now do it and am damn proud of myself for doing so. Although i have made stupid mistakes that cost me a little money in the end i learn whats right and whats not.

On that note anyone who has the time and money to do stuff but are just scared to do it. JUST DO IT!!!
