    More important than anything is getting a really good tune

    The only thing I have to say is that CTR cams might not be the best choice, they were designed with NA power in mind, so on a boosted application they really arent the best choice. If you want to use OEM Honda cams, go with the stock cams. GS-R cams are quite boost friendly.

    werd...

    gsr cams are considered the best oem set for boost. If you want to go further, get a set of adjustable cam gears, and tune on a dyno. I've seen people gaining 20whp just by reducing valve overlap (bad because it lets boost out of the cylinders) just by tuning the cam angles.

    +1 on switching the cams.

    And instead of spending this time getting the build on paper (which isn't a bad idea, mind you), I'd be searching for a reputable shop to tune it. Often times they will have some of the best advice on how to get to a certain power goal efficiently and safely.

    As for the turbo setup Im still going with the AFI kit but for the actual turbo itself I will go with the power enterprise IHI-RX6B turbo. I have done a lot of research on these turbo's and it sounds like there bullet proof.

    Good job with the research. Its a key factor in any build.

    Are you referring to Evan from Evan's Tuning?

    I've heard nothing but great things about his work.

    I'd trust my car in his hands. Is he in your area?
