which cams are you getting? Change teh valve springs if your getting into it also. You might want to have your head ported and polished, but as of right now, it wont serve you any purpose

peace out

since the head is off, get the Toda head gasket. Bumps your CR to 11.4:1. Not much for hp now, but could help down the road if you want to continue upgrading.

Yeah tomro morning I am getting my cams, intake mani, k20a reflash ecu, s2k valves, and hondata gasket installed..... They told me like $87 and some change for the s2k valve springs, but make sure you get the 03's, the 04's are only good up till 8k maybe 8500, i cant remeber, but the 03's go to 9k.

if you have the type r cams, get the 2003 s2k valve springs, they are good up to 9k rpm and are like $90 from the dealer.
Do that, the Hondata Type R reflash, and of course the Type R IM...your car will kick ass:thumbsup:

If I were you, I'd wait for the P-Hondata to come out and get it preflashed with the K20A program. Then have it dyno tuned to match ur car. It has a few base programs with it to begin with from what they say on the site. nothing is definate yet; so it's best to wait a month or 2 for it's release than spend $200 now.

Yea, thats exactly what I am going to do as soon as the Spec N+ cams come out.

I have the K20A reflash now, but I am trading up as time (and money) permits.:thumbsup:
