    how? this was my plan. i was going to do this and then get a p30 mugen chiped ecu. the ecu specs is as follows

    vtec= 4800

    revlimit= 9500

    in due time i was going to get ctr cams as well.

    Why would it yeild more top end, it still is going to let the same amount of air in at WOT as it would before, the plenum(sp) and runners are only so big.

    youll loose power from 2-6k, and gain about 2 hp up top if you COMPLETELY remove the internals.

    its really not worth it.

    and btw, bumping the redline to 9500 on a stock motor is REALLY not worth it imo-

    you're not going to be making anymore power up there then you were at 8200 and you're going to really be putting A LOT more stress on a lot of components that weren't designed for that RPM

    yeah but cams don't improve a stock motors ability to handle stress like that

    Dude heres the deal, chips ae mostly pointless seeing as how no engine is really gonna be in need of the exact same fuel maps ETC. as another engine. The only real point to a basic chip swap is if you need a higher rev limit, do to modifacations you have done IE valvetrain and cams or if you have and engine thats been built around that specific chips base maps witch would be like buy a spoon chip and build an engine to the same specs as the one that the chip was initialy used on. Confusing but if you can try and understand what im saying you might be better off. Your only puting your self in danger of mis shifting by making your lev limit so high. If you wanna spend some money on something usefull get a VAFC/SAFC or hondata or something of that nature motec, aem etc. etc..
