There really isn't much, you can probably dig into the internals but gains will still be minimal, P&P will give you a few extra horses and some top end. I don't think any company makes cams for your motor but do some research, that could net you some nice gains if they're out there.

Why not keep the TL as a nice DD and buy a project?

You have a V6. It has two heads. Therefore it has two cams, one per head.

And seriously, why the hell do you need to be going 140 mph? I'd rather have a small Civic or Integra that's quick to accelerate then some big boat of a car that's capable of eventually reaching speeds you should never be traveling anyway...

Old ass American V8s have one cam. Most import and some newer domestic V6/V8 engines have multiple cams.

And 80-90ish I guess I can understand on the highway, but 140 is just stupid...

Yeah nobody likes a thread from the dead lol. And IBTL means In Before The Lock.
1. This.

2. Since the last post in this thread, the original posters have all gone on to further their education and careers, bought homes, got married, had kids, watched their kids grow old, and are now residing in retirement communities in Florida.

3. IBTL.
