    :wtf2: The stock ecu might be your problem, especially since the stock pr4 ecu cuts out at 7200. You might want to mention to your friend that he should get an ecu that engages vtec to make full use of the b16s bigger lobes.

    does he have valve train to hold 10k?

    and even if he does, skunk2 stage 2 cams are dead after 9000

    Chipped ecu's aren't the best way to go. He needs to get hondata or another rom editing software to tune his maps with. Those "spoon" and "skunk2" programs etc. are garbage. That may be one reason his engine is sputtering out at 7k.

    Umm hondata is a chipped ECU. I woudl have to say a chipped ECU is the best way to go (if you can't afford a fully tuned stand alone). Your right about the spoon, mugen, skunk2, eBay special, etc... chips though. A lot of them are just garbage. They advance your timing and add more fuel giving you less power and shitty gas mileage.

    Get yourself a wideband or borrow one from a friend and make your own map using one of the free ROM editors available.
