    Sup, Im a noobie to the forum, just registered maybe an hour ago but it seems you guys have aloooot of useful info compared to other forums :thumbsup: and helpful too... Well anyway I bought my car about a year ago with the ITR motor already in it, but it had some issues that need to be addressed. For example the previous owner never changed the ECU so it still has The SI ecu, Im planning on getting a Type R ecu chipped and converting from obd2 to obd1. Yet, my main concern is the head, me and my father were checking it out when I changed my plugs (the Greddy plugs lasted forever) and came to realize that whoever previously put in the plugs before I did tightened the hell out of one of them, and obviously didnt torque it right. Whatever they did, they STRIPPED THE THREADS IN MY HEAD on that one plug chamber. Im sendin it off to get re-done, but I want to work with the head.... plans so far... Skunk2 Stage 2 Cams, valve springs, retainers, and cam gears. (All Skunk2 of course) Anyone have any experience with a setup like this and I DO APOLOGIZE if this was already posted, I have searched though and especially on this forum I've learned that Skunk2 valvetrain is the best bang for the buck. This car is my daily driver too. It has (came with) : OBX Cam Gears (ill), JDM Jasma certified ITR header, omni power straight pipe, apexi WS2 exhaust, AEM CAI, and Greddy Oil catch tank. I want to change this setup to J's Racing or Password:JDM carbon fiber or kevlar intake, Invidia straight pipe, Invidia 2.5" exhaust, and Im not sure what header (need to find a good one for reasonable price) Any feedback is greatly appreciated especially with the head setup I have planned. Sorry for all the writing (just realized I can turn this into my instructor at school for an essay grade) and Thank You for any feedback. Im glad to be on the forum!

    Thanks for the feedback man, appreciate it. Yea the deal with Invidia is thats exactly what I dont want, a ricer sound!!!!! As far as headers too, I know where your coming from but no way ima spend 150 on an ebay header or anythin like that lol... the lowest Ill probably go is $491 for the DC Stainless Steal Race Header. I still got some research to do. If Im gonna do it, Im gonna do it right!!!! Ill check out the exhaust deal, I wana find one with better flow but good sound. Thumbs up too for the chipped P28 ECU cause thats exactly what Ive had in mind lately.... damn dude with this SI ECU in the car, it runs all wierd and its annoying, RPM's all wierd and everything. Even my dad (he's a mechanic) said damn, these guys did a hell of a job.... but I got a good price on the car, and this time it'll be done right! ;) Thanks Blanco

    LOL, That is true, will do. Good thinking... I actually found this on ITRCA.com. Basic performance mods for Type R's since their stock parts are well engineered already....

    ITRCA.com = Integra Type R Club of America!

    Seems like good info.
