Hi guys I have a recently built k20a2, since the rebuild the car lacks power, it crosses over into vtec, but I feel no power gain and its asif the car hits a wall once it reaches 7k rpm. You also get a strange (backfire?) Noise from the engine bay when it reaches 7k. The crossover is audible, once in a while, usually in second gear it will feel like vtec is going to work properly, but feels almost strangled. Car is stock, other than CAI.

How confident are you that the cam timing is correct? Mistiming the exhaust cam well kill your power.
