    There really isn't much, you can probably dig into the internals but gains will still be minimal, P&P will give you a few extra horses and some top end. I don't think any company makes cams for your motor but do some research, that could net you some nice gains if they're out there.

    Why not keep the TL as a nice DD and buy a project?

    You have a V6. It has two heads. Therefore it has two cams, one per head.

    And seriously, why the hell do you need to be going 140 mph? I'd rather have a small Civic or Integra that's quick to accelerate then some big boat of a car that's capable of eventually reaching speeds you should never be traveling anyway...

    Old ass American V8s have one cam. Most import and some newer domestic V6/V8 engines have multiple cams.

    And 80-90ish I guess I can understand on the highway, but 140 is just stupid...
