    ok, so last night i got bored and decided to put my BLOX IM, 64mm TB and my Hondata intake manifold gasket.. all went well other than a gas leak from the FPR (another hose clamp fixed it).. there is a noticeable gain, but when VTEC activates there is a terrible dip in power but my VTEC seems to pull alot harder now..

    what would cause this dip in the power curve at VTEC?? when i chip and tune the p28 i got recently, will that smooth things out??

    well, i used to have an ITR manifold on there and it never did anything like that then.. hoping its just the crossover

    hmm, need to find a good tuner in my area now

    ok, i ordered my chipping kit and extra chips from Xenocron and i found someone to make me a base map.. i told him my setup and he said i should to a Type R base map and advance the timing a couple of degrees.. what do you think??

    That would probably be a good start. But engine setups are so individualistic, so I would recommend someone tunning it out for you if that is an available option. ;)
