    itll make power, but itll make you prone to detonation even with the timing retarded. I would talk to a reputable honda tuner before going through with that.

    high over lap (like the crower 404s offer) is not a good thing on a turbo engine. It allows the back pressure from the turbo to build up in the combustion chamber causing higher temps and makes the mixture more prone to predetonate (the leading cause of blown rods).

    it wouldnt hurt, but it wouldnt help a lot. you see real gains when add the turbo. it helps with power and with safety.

    Sure, if you have the money to waste. I would just buy the set of cams you're going to want to use. It's not like you're going to gain a ton of power with 404s on low compression pistons anyway.

    Whatever you want. I'm just saying it's pointless to spend money on all-motor parts if you're going to go with boost later- unless you just have cash to throw away.

    See if you can trade em to somebody for some dedicated turbo cams (i.e. high lift, but very short durration).
