Default what's next?

well, i got my intake, header and catback set up, so now im looking for my next mods...
i was thinking about an AEM pulley kit, AEM cam gear, and a skunk2 68mm throttle body?
and how about


how do those mods sound?
keep in mind that im building a NA f22 engine, so no forced inductions or engine swaps

I like UR pulleys better than AEM. The biggest gain is from lightening the crank pulley and AEM doesn't do the crank. There are people tat say that there is a torsion damper that is on the stock pulley, but at least on an auto, I'vehad no adverse effects. They also make the alt pulley for your car for lightening (stock dia.).

The cam gear and TB are ok, but I wouldn't expect much performance out of them. I could be wrong though .... he TB might have some gains. I'm not sure that how you tune the cam gear and I don't do mods that I couldn't do myself. I have a good idea, but it seems that it would be a PITA to set it, dyno, open & adjust, dyno, open & adjust .... or is there a better way?

I'm interested in the voltage stabilizers also. The apexi says that it has a dual condenser; what is that? I know what a capacitor is and also that most "voltage stabilizers" are really just caps. If the VS is just a cap, then I'd hook up a normal music cap instead, they are usually more powerful. Instead of the grounding kit, I'd do the big 3 DIY with the flexible clear 0/1 ga. wire that they use in the link .... 00Accord posted it recently.

The MSD stuff I'd say is good for your car since you don't need the 6A or 6AL boxes .... I've heard/seen/read nighmares about them.

[size=5]GOOD LUCK!!!

for the AEM cam gear, they say that you can gain power without any cam changes
