Hello Everyone,i Have A Stage 2 Crower Camshaft. When I Purchased It,the Crower Website Said Vtec Controller Recommened. I Was Wondering How Many People Are Using This Stage 2 Turbo Cam And If So Do I Need The Vtec Controller? Thanks

have u installed the cam yet? does it idle? the thing with cams is it moves the power band. so you need to compensate for fuel/ignition. i know with the stg2 NA cam that the idle needs to be leaned out a little to get it to idle once warmed up. vtec point also changes due to the trq curve...

if u have obd1 car, just get ur ecu chipped and tune it that way. far better than the vtec controller because with vtec controller does not tune ignition...

when you add fuel with vtec controller it moves the timing graph up or down on a linear scale with the fuel...

yeah get that ecu chipped and also get an adj cam gear along with the cam to get the most out of it. are you upgrading springs/retainers for the cam too?

how is your bottom end? if u want to go above stock redline that is def recommended to upgrade the rod bolts aswell

It's good for the stock engine it was designed/programmed for...
If you do changes to the engine, you need to adjust the ECU accordingly...

fpr is no good get a true management system like chipping ur p28, then tune with crome or another program. crome is free unless you get pro which is 150...
