you really need to get that dyno tuned ... you have enough stuff done that you will never get it right with the "but-dyno"

Dyno tuning is the only way. Every car is different. You could take two of the same engines, same mods, and different cam gear settings would be necessary for the same gains.

i'm going to go ahead and say try 2 -1 for a week then 2 -2

thats what i have mine set at now and it seems to be the best... yea the dyno is the only real way... but all of the people that just told you that... i bet they haven't dyno tuned there cars... so if you want a quick try just do that.

i was merely pointing out the fact that all the people who say go to a dyno... just dont do it

I dyno'd my car and with just fuel and timing adjsutments picked up 22 HP. I cringe to think what I could have made with cam gears on the ITR cams I was working with on my B16a ;)

28hp or more? A 155 HP at the wheels b16a would have been FUN!

i have mine set at 2 int -1 exh, i can't tell too much of a diff... i think i liked the 1 -1 better though, i keep changing it... i wish dyno time wasn't so damn expensive :(
 
well, you need things that are tunable on it-
such as a vtec controller to adjust vtec and airfuel ratio, and things liek adjustable cam gears to adjust timing. things like that
