my engine has done about 125000 miles, still in good shape. Id like to put some Skunk2 Stage 1 cams in there for a little power boost. Id get theskunk2cam gears aswell so i could set up the engine properly. The UK spec B16a2 is 160bhp standard, so id like to take it to approaching200bhp with the stage 1 cams and full breathing work

i would do, high comp pistons, valvetrain, stage 2 cams, cam gears, intake, intake manifold, header, 2.25 exhaust and 200whp is achievable

i was talking 200bhp, not 200whp, 200bhpis more like 170whp. I cant afford to go crazy here, i just wanted a cheap power increase with the addition of stage 1 cams and breathing work

how much are you looking to spend on your head to make it breath so you can get the power you want?
