ahhhh, I hope september. I really do. Same thing for that IM they're supposedly making.
Back at Spring Nationals, i believe in May, i spoke to the dude from Skunk2. I asked him about the Intake Manifold and he said that they had not even started development on it. He said it was not high on their priority list. He did say that they were working on cams though. Time will tell.

Just put it any part # in the top right hand side of the crower website.

It gives you the price and such of the product. I would call them for more info regarding purchase.

go to the sponsor marketplace on honda-tech and look for a guy doing a big sale on Crower. I asked him how much for the cams, springs, and retainers and he said he could do it for $1070 shipped.


EDIT: here's the link. just look a little past half way down the page for the prices of part #'s 63453-2 and 84164.

what stage would u be going with....either 1 or 2? also do they have a map you could use with kpro that crower has made to work with the cams? i kinda doubt that so im guessing youll have do all the custom tuning yourself.....

stage 2 or 3. probably the 3's as I eventually want to build a k24.

the 3's seem a little too aggressive for my use with the raised idle and all. So i think soon i will purchase the stage 2's, s2000 valvesprings, and kpro...but are retainers necessary?

I don't know if I would trust the S2000 springs with a high lift cam. I would check the lift specs for both, if the crowers lift is higher then the S2000 lift I wouldn't get them.

very good point, never thought about that. Ill look into it, and if the s2000 springs wont work, ill just have to go with the crower springs recommended for the stage 2's. I was just going to use the s2k springs as a cheaper alternative.

from what i've heard and from what i see in the cam descriptions, you'll need that stage 3 to get to 9750k rpms daily to get the power out of the cams....
what?

check out and see if importbuilder's springs will work. they have two different sets and they are both priced VERY reasonable.

but you also need to realize that $370 for the Crower springs AND retainers isn't too bad once you think about spending $400+shipping for TODA's springs alone.
