Arouse the DAMPFHAMMER!
If your rbc is already ported, I honestly don’t think a stock RRC will outperform it by much if at all. The 2.2 should be enough to get you to 250 whp.
It depends on the header and intake setup. Member Lotus had an case with his 2.2 stroker engine, where the (ported) RRC IM came out less performant as the RBC IM. Here a short intake and a 4-1 header was used. When member katman tested a unported only opened 70 mm TB RRC IM it came out better almost 10 whp then the RBC (ported and unported), he used an AEM CAI which is a long intake piping with filter position in the lower bumper section. I am not sure about the details, European IP's can't reach out the superstreetonline.com article without tricks.Yeah my tuner said the gain will be very minimal if at all. I'm just going to enjoy the setup for what it is right now, maybe upgrade the Cai to a 3.5 inch eventually. I'm very tempted to boost my car but it is my daily so I want to keep it reliable.
Definitely.I think that is a good idea. 240whp in a rsx should be pretty fun, you could always make it lighter or get more traction to go faster.
The DC 3.5 OG series cams are short duration high lift cams, which does, depending on CR, a good job in a 86x86 engine. There was an engine tuned and built by Advanced Tuned Performance who made on a 86x86 engine, CR 12.5:1, H, E, stock head 292 flwhp/265 flwNm, which isn't bad (DynaPack).
