I researched alot and seen dyno's and stuff, But i want to know from people that have type-r cam and manifold does the car pull harder than the stock cams? Is it worth doing the setup? Thanks again

Yes, it's much better. about 16 whp.

Get the Hondata with an S-AFC or the Kpro to go with that and you will have a great very fast car or at least fast enough to get you into trouble.

They're two diff. setups itr cams are the ones from the typ-r of course and the toda are aftermarket and they make more power but u also need to upgrade some stuff with toda.

You can but u need the manifold so it can breath better. Type-r manifold makes power at 7600-up so u would need it since u would be reving to 8900-9000rpm.

so if you get the type-r cams you need to get a new ecu right since we can only rev to 8400 stock right

Remember when kindle pulled me hard on the highway up to 140? It was because of those R cams! :eek: :driving:

I'm running Type R cams, Type R ECU flash and Injen short ram intake. It's alot nicer. 6 gear is now a passing gear for getting around grandpa in the left lane. Comments about the intake manifold being needed for the lofty portion of the powerband is true. It still accelerates but you can "feel" the bottleneck that high up due to the power trailing off.

Hey,
Jeramy had a really nice car. It's too bad that it was stollen recently, but don't fret! He has some pretty amazing plans for the future which will remain unsaid for now. As a good friend of his I have sworn to secrecy! On another note, I will be purchasing the ITR Intake manifold and ITR cams very soon. I think this will compliment my setup pretty nicely.
