    I'm assuming by b16 head that you have b16 cams in there, so if you get GSR cams you will see a slight increase in power... for 65 bucks, I'd be all over it.

    If you upgrade to gsr cams, you will not need to upgrade the valvetrain, because the gsr cams have a mild profile; you will not float a valve unless you hit like 10k by accidentally downshifting instead of upshifting. For 65 bucks, I'd do it. 65 and about an hour or so of installation for maybe 10 ponies would satisfy me.

    The pr4 doesn't have an input for a knock sensor. Your best bet is to just not jump on vtec until your car is warmed up. I don't know how the VAFC works, which I am assuming you are using to engage vtec, but maybe you can hook up a temp sensor that will keep the motor from engaing vtec until the motor is warmed up. I dunno.
