    yeah, actually

    -better hp producing header and lighter unit such as smsp.
    -sleeved bottom for increasing displacement.
    -PP head, with some higher lift cams
    -better lsd than your oem unit
    -ATS 4.9 final drive, but your 4.7 is good.
    -70mm exhaust, isn't this over 2.5inchs??? I think 2.5inches is 63mm
    -hondata and tuning would be nice


    the list goes on and on.


    good luck and best of luck with your ride.

    thanx JDMilan ,thats a nice list but are these mods proven to give real increase in hp,
    road handling, grip & durability. i am not sure if its a good idea to re tune itr motors.
    from what i hear itr motor are fully tuned internaly.(cams,pistons & head)
    smsp makes better header thats nice to know.

    in no way are the ITR engines "fully tuned"
    you can do just as much to them as you can to any other engine

    you can still up the compression
    you can still do a better port and polish
    you can still get more agressive cams

    etc etc etc.........

    the ITR engine is a great engine but it is not the end of the line for tuning you still have all of the options that you would have on any other engine
