Tried searching, but no luck. I was wondering if anyone on this board has this setup. I want to go with the Type-R camshafts & IM + Kpro soon, but I would like to boost it after. Or should I just got with the turbo+krpo w/o all the Type-R stuff. Please let me know. Thanks.

i believe its best to go straight with the turbo kit and there should be a thread floating around about this because i read about it somewhere.

im pretty sure the Type-R stuff will work but correct me if im wrong....also if u went turbo u could pick up a CN stage 1 kit w/guardian and put the money instead of buying k-pro towards it :thumbsup:

You CAN do it but it's not worth the money or time invested to make it work.

All the money you would put towards your type R stuff you can just put towards your turbo setup to make it run more efficiently.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I think that I will listen to you guys and forget about the type-r stuff. Now I just gotta save.

I was curious about the same issue on my RSX.

As a previous owner of a jrsc boosted 2000 civic si (B16 motor), I had attempted to install type R cams in addition to the charger.

I was quickly discouraged after my tuner shop told me it would be a horrendous waste. The R cam set up has both cams "open" at longer durations...meaning boost would just blow right through the engine from intake to exhaust ports.

I am curious if the same situation exists in the K20 with this setup
