Your last sentence just about answers itself.

I think the delta 272 is the biggest you can run on stock valvesprings but it will only pull to 6800.

i would have it regrinded... by Delta, the 282 is the biggest u can run on the stock vavletrain and the 282 will pull you to 7.8K easy... the 272 will pull you to 7.2K for sure..

Hmm, that's not bad. I might just have to look into that for my boosted HF project until I finish my H23.

I might be wrong but are you thinking a A6 cam will go into the Y7??
from what i was told it will work as long as you run an adjustable cam gear.

You can rev 8000 with 272, but no power up 6800rpm. I run one while 2 years with cam gear and I didn't find any power past 7000rpm with 2 degrees retard, but much power lost in lower band. This cam is a mild cam for street use or low boost setup. It's like stock sohc vtec always engage, lift around .357 really not much for hard pushing but power is slightly increased and noticeable VS stock y7 cam.

I just receive my 282, more than .400lift (I didn't find back my spec sheet), and engine well built can make power easily past 7500. I'm in hurry to try it with newer valve spring and tuning after everything will be done this next spring.

good info. i think i'm just gonna go ahead and buy a built head... or at least mildly built. preferrably with a nasty cam in it. anybody have one for sale? lol. i'm still trying to figure out if it's even worth it thoug...i mean i want 13's or better and with a sohc it just looks to be more difficult than it needs to be...we'll see though... if i can come up on a good deal for a built SOHC i'll stay with that =)

the cam isn't the only thing that will allow you the "make power" at high rpms..the d series head will need work also.

hey hollister, just to let you know. no buying or selling on here until you have reached 65 posts and been accepted into our family =)
in regards to your post, as joe said the head will have to be worked on, ported, polished 3 angle valve job and why not upgrade your valvetrain, its kinda cheap insurance if your gonna be revving high on a bigger cam. higher revs = more power on n/a d's and they gotta be able to breathe first off but able to withstand the rpms to get it to breathe, i'd say get your head work, new valve train and a big ol cam like ya want. then you should see power all the way up to the cams design. or atleast your set ups

yeah i know =)

as far as head work, it's kind of a given. i was gonna try and cheat and just throw in a cam and call it good...but i know iwouldn't be happy with it so i'd have to do at least valve train and a good valve job. i'm just gonna try to go witha B16 swap...then build a GSR block for boost on the side...once it's built, throw in the GSR bottom end with a peakboost kit...i want 12's or 11's now...i'm not even happy with 13's anymore. lol
