    I may be getting some ctr cams soon, at a really good deal. What kind of power gains can I expect from them? My mods are in my sig. Or would you guys advise me to just save for some skunks?

    Thanks for the help.

    skunks are fine.. they had problems waaayyy back when.. they're perfectly fine now... and they are a lot nicer than CTR cams.. just look at the pinned cam guide.

    yeah skunk had a bad batch like 2-3 years ago, the problem was solved since.


    CTR cams are very nice, great oem piece and your larger gains are going to be in the midrange and upper rpms past 8k

    I also got mine at a good deal I think... $355 brand new, intake and exhaust.

    What type of chip should I use with the CTR cams? :huh:
    Hondata, Mugen, Skunk, XS, etc...

    get yourself something nice that can grow with the car as you modify it...

    Here in Hawaii there's no dealers that deals with Hondata. It would be difficult for me to have my car tune.

    Or is there still a way I can tune my car?

    I have CTR cams in my LS/VTEC...11.2:1, eagle rods, SRP pistons, Hondata s200, I/H/E...they've been good in the low and mid range and pull damn hard above 7k

    Cool...

    With the Hondata s200 is it possible to tune my car without their program?
    BTW what's "I/H/E"?

    I/H/E = intake, headers, and exhaust, the 3 quickest boltons.
