Icon5 Car faster than it should be. possible cams?

Ok i bought a 98 Prelude back in august and the guy had only had it for 6 months and he bought it from another guy that did all the mods. So far i have an AEM intake (blue one) DC sport Ceramic Headers, and full GReddy Evo-II cat back... yet here is the weird thing it pulls on cars im not supposed to be able to beat with just IHE. im talking Cobalt SS/SC's and my friend Ion Redline with ported intake and SC with straight exhaust and CAI, as well as other preludes with IHE. when i opened my valve cover one day to paint it the heads and cams looked brand new same with the gears and stuff. my friend seems to think the cams are not stock. When i hit VTEC it is much louder than my friends. also u can hear cam roll but i suspected it was just from having headers and cat-back. WHAT DO YOU THINK!?!?!

Re: Car faster than it should be. possible cams?

Is there a bluish tint on your cams if so i would suspect type S cams but let me double check on that? Is there a name or a stamp on them or the cam gears when you removed your Valve cover? At what RPM does your Vtec crossover at? Could you provide a picture of the motor with the valve cover off.

Re: Car faster than it should be. possible cams?

Maybe there is also an ECU upgrade? You should get it tuned and dyno'd.

Re: Car faster than it should be. possible cams?

you have to think, the prelude makes the same brake horsepower N/A as both the cobalt and ion do with F/I. your car should be faster than both of those anyways. H22's are a funny motor, some feel faster than others. for some reason the H22 is not a cookie cutter engine, for example, if you dyno 10 different H22's (same block code, same mods, same mileage, etc.) you will most likely get 10 different hp and torque numbers. maybe you got lucky and got a better one than other preludes you have raced. and i hope you mean on a track (street racing is not condoned on this site).

Why are there still no pics? I am very curious! It takes one minute to snap pics of the engine stamp on your block.
