Yes there are places of course that will do it, but not only is cam making a very VERY precise job, it is very expensive to get done, and you will spend close to what you spent getting it made, on installing it.

Messing with the cams is not something for those who dont know what they are doing, and are just looking for more power. you have to get cams made for what you plan on doing later on. IE, forced induction, nitrous, higher compression pistons, etc.

If you do enough research, then you can figure it out. I know someone that is getting cams made for a legend, specially made for supercharged engines, and
lower compression pistons, but thats the thing, he spent a good $1000 getting them custom made.....

tread softly when you go to cams, unless they are premade, and dyno tested.

ALSO. About VTEC, and how it is "so great"

it really isnt. It is like a crappy nitrous setup. Only does any good at a specific RPM. The legend has a very nice system, not the same thing as VTEC, but equally as cool. It is called VIS (variable intake system). We have the normal TB butterfly, and three more butterflies inside the throttle body. These butterflies open at a certain RPM, which not only help with keeping your A:F ratio even, but give you a nice boost of power at the three specific RPMs. There is 1 that goes off at ~1900rpm, 1 at 2500-3000 (i believe) and the 3rd at 4100RPM. The first is hardly noticeable, but when the 2nd goes, there is a large increase in acceleration which cant easily be felt and heard. The 3rd is of course the largest. You will hear your exhaust tone deepen, and the car will start to pull even harder than before. (this accentuates the already stellar torque band of the legend motor)

it will not work. and that is final. Can you put a DOHC VTEC head off the F20 in the s2000 onto an F22/23 SOHC from an accord no it isnt doable just because they have the same letter DOHC motors are designed differently than SOHC motors are.

Its not impossible, but it will coast a lot and I mean a lot of money to do it. No one that i know would put that money on a legend.

you would have to widen the car. you would have to get a custom oil pan made, because the only smart way to do this would to use the entire NSX engine.

DOHC heads are huge. they CANT fit between the strut towers...and if you start ******* with the towers, you destroy the rigidity of the car.



NSX engine.

its not worth it.

Honda made a few thousand examples of the 2.0L (200hp) "wing-turbo" car.

Honda also made 250 coupes in 1989 with the 2.7L turbo engine for the Japanese market. At 277hp, it is still the second most powerful car produced by Honda.
