    Did you upgrade your valve train? Skunk 2's i heard, make power after 8g rpms to about 10,000 rpms. so if you didnt upgrade the valvetrain, then those cams won't do you any good. B)

    Did you tune your car after them? That is when you'll make more power.

    i thought that a type-r already has a pretty stout valvetrain. but, you should definetly tune or upgrade your ecu.

    wtf is the point of power from 8k-10k? how long can your engine last like that and what are your chances of keepin the rpms there? seriously.

    I would try getting some adjustable cam gears that way you can adjust the advance of the cams.

    You must not be a drag racer..lol
    You cant slap a race cam in a stock motor and expect to make power, Did you even tune the car?

    :blink: :blink:

    the stage 2's should make pretty good mid range, but it'll SHINE up top compared to the ITR cams. Depends on your program on the chip it might cause your power output to slip. For example I had a jun programmed chip and it starts dumping fuel at 8200 rpm.

    tune it with a vafc or hondata/uberdata.

    the thing what makes me nervous is that the car runs same as with the factory itr cam...
    because this thing was the last modify..
    i tune the chips with uberdata/crome...

    you cannot download hondata...

    seriously, ditch that exhaust system, it is a bottleneck in the exhaust flow, go to a 2.5" what size collector is on the header you're using? you should get something with 2.5" collector as well.

    Dude, not to be a jerk or anything, but are you reading the posts? Get a new exhaust. That is holding you up on the top end for sure. it dosen't matter what kind of chip you get, that still is going to be a big bottle neck. Id change the exhaust first then see where you end up.

    also, chips are worthless. 2 engines can have the exact same mods done to it, however, the tuning will be diffrent. Buy a real tuning system like Hondata, Uberdata, Greddy, AEM, ect.

    I find that the jdm p30 is a good basemap for allmotor stuff , then rework the fuel maps a little. Its got some pretty good timming maps
