That's what I thought... now I need the type-r point.

No, my RSX is black with bronze volk's. You must know Fedor... however he
doesn't have the RSX anymore.

:cool:
Ooooooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh your eric. Hey im john. Yeah i know fedor...he sold his rsx for that sil80. And i dont believe that his rsx is faster than yours...you got type R cams! I believed you talked to some of my friends at redline last week. Right when i left you came in 2 minutes later.

And no im not the guy with the white kosei k1's....thats someone else. My RSX-S looks stock from the exterior except for the diy tails and removed waffles. =P

Yup, thatz me. :D
The type-r cams aren't that hot. I want to get the Toda spec-a cams.
That's a project for this winter. For now, I'm going to tweek the K-pro
parameters for best drivability. I don't like the low VTEC point that is in
the Hondata calibration.

:cool:

ah cool. I would consider the toda n2 cams or the new crower cams that are gonna come out. The spec A's dont make barely any more power than the R cams.

Im not trying to make people avoid from buying your cams but if i were you eric i would reconsider gettin spec A's. A lot of people who had the spec As sold them for N2s, or are awaiting another new set of cams.

I.E. Crower cams (they may be out already...not sure though), Skunk2 cams, if they ever do come out.

Lil conversation i had with fedor today...heh got bored and we both started readin some crap on crsx.

DJandreev: Eric?
Importtuner4ever: yeah
Importtuner4ever: i honestly dont think the spec A's are worth it
Importtuner4ever: not much better than the type R
Importtuner4ever: id go for the n2's or the crower stage IIIs that are comin out =\
DJandreev: well yeh
DJandreev: spec a are ok
DJandreev: but not great

The spec A's wont give much gains over the type R. You maybe able to tune some more power out of the type R cams, that may tie you over until you get some real nice cams! :thumbsup:

no the spec A's are great whats wrong with 220+whp
n2 ar ebetter buts its double the price for what 9 more hp ok u spend another 1200 for 9 hp thats really smart
but not saying it just do sell it as i have no reason to sell other then i want to invest my money and stop putting it into my car

stock 170whp spec A with i/h/e 220+whp fine tuning so there is more room
about 50whp so its pretty big gain

The N2 cams would be my choice after looking at the specs. I still want the
cam angle controlled by the computer for drivability, so the spec-b's are out
of the question.

Doesn't anyone know the VTEC point of the type-r?

:cool:

may i ask why your interested in the vtec point?

Anyways yeah the n2 are a better choice...or the crower cams. I think they are quite a bit cheaper.

according to Hondata, k20a crossover is at 6100

so probably 5800 is for type s and for itr

Its a toss up...I got conflicting info. when I was in search of the Type R ecu vtec engagement point. WELL, now that I am running the dc5r ecu I would have to say vtec is at 5800 just like the dc5 ecu. BUT its difficult to tell because I dont have a huge vtec jump with my current mods. 5800 / 6100, both are believable. I would email Hondata to find out 100% for sure.
Like I said, I am running the dc5r ecu and I cant tell for sure. :dontknow:

I thought you had a problem with that ECU. Did you get another one?

My engine is basically a type-r, I want the the type-r vtec point. Honda put
a lot of engineering man-hours into the calibration. OEM calibrations usually
have the best drivability. I'll try changing the vtec point to 5800 and 6100
and see how it responds. I've got it at 5600 right now and it seems to work
OK. Going lower with vtec actually feels like I loose power. The
engine doesn't really have a lot of power until it hits 6000 rpm.

yeah id just go call someone at hondata to be sure.

Oh btw do you have just the itr cams or the itr cams and pistons? Just curious.

Oh and where did you get all your itr stuff?

I.E. Suspension, fd, lsd, brembos, etc etc. You mustve gotten a deal on it! :thumbsup:

The only thing keeping my engine from being an actual type-r is the pistons.
I got most my stuff from Pole Position Products. The calipers, lsd, flywheel
and rotors came from eBay (MidnightM3). I got a few items from ICB
Motorsports. Mugen stuff from King, of course.

wow not bad. Only thing i wouldve done different is a cai instead of a box, and a race header instead of a R exhaust mani. Cause the dc rh is pretty cheap. But you probably got the R exhaust mani. for cheaper.

Anyways i really like what you done...good stuff.
