blox and skunk2 make the best cams for honda, my opinion, and toda (expensive as hell). but get some hc pistons, upgrade the valvtrain, intake manifold, throttle body, and am ecu, and ull have a n/a sohc beast.

blox cams around 550
cam gears 200 or less
itantake manifold, 270 (how much i got mine for)
tb maybe 400 or less
vlavetrain 200
ecu 300.
dont know about the pistons though.

itll be a lot less for a d-series. and i dont think blox has released the sohc cam yet. but when they do, ill see if i can get a group buy.

sacicons, I looked, i gotta d16y8. Just curious.... are they tough engines? I heard they can take a serious beating. And are they strong enough to handle a s/c ?

yo tell you the truth most sohc can got with a beating depending how you beat it for about a year. i had a friend running sohc all motor and was spraying 100 and it lasted for a year. soo yeh.....i say the way you treat your baby.

my baby has 64000 miles on it. Works excellent other than the rattling heat shield of the manifold [:@] [:@] [:@] [:@] [:@] GOD I HATE THAT NOISE! NOBODY WILL CLEARLY TELL ME HOW TO REMOVE IT EITHER!
