It was specifically for the "oomph" feel. It was to be more noticable then the VTEC of the time.I still never understood why the cam change is tuned so crappy in the stock calibration. I'm assuming for emissions reasons or something that jump on the second cam is really pretty bad. There is a lot of torque left on the table in the 5-6.5k range just from adjusting the lift point.
Chronos - have you noticed any slippage at all on the stock clutch? Just curious. Apparently , some people get away with it. And I am psychologically preparing myself to engage in absolute love. It will be a cool drive back to the East coast. I'm pretty sure it's going to be akin to driving a loaded weapon, you need to be careful where you point it. Because it's gonna go there when you pull the trigger.Phil's latest tunes really make the cam change very progressive. You can still feel it just a bit, but it's *way* less in-your face.
@Komiko: You will absolutely love it, even with it not tuned out to maximum power. Are you installing the ACT clutch? Curious to hear how that feels. I have one here (and the fidanza lightweight flywheel) but I have not installed either yet.
Oh I remember you and that sweet triple black rocket of yours! With the spoiler from hell . Have you thought about a tilting clam for that beast? And yes, every car in the forum should be so lucky as to spend a week at TurboPhil's Auto Spa & Service Emporium.Great stuff Komiko; car looks great without its knickers! Can't wait to see how she performs after her visit to the spa. BTW, great to meet you Saturday--remember the the Black 2010 Exige? Have fun, safe travels.
