i know how the i-vtec works on the newer k series engines; in fact this entire post suppports what i've always said; the upper pin goes into over time in as little as 2500 rpm, even if a MORE aggressive lobe is used after 6000 rpms, that still makes it a different beast than the old b series engines that did this strictly after 5000 rpms or so, regardless if you are flooring it or not.
And if i recall, you stated a noticable 'cam changeover' at 5800 rpms? Your own temple of vtec pulled info goes against that as well.
Header and an intake make a car louder, but probably only add about 12-18 hp and that is just engine producing, not hp thats getting to the wheels; you probably added about 6 or 7. Dyno your car, you'd be suprised.
