Anyone had any experience w/ cam changes in the dohc(01)? Have to daily drive but want more power. Just curious. Have 1100 mi. before the warranty expires. Driving to Long Island in a couple of weeks and will kill the warranty by then or on the trip. After that the wife will allow some mods.:D

A very expensive mod for a relatively small gain on cam swaps for these DOHCs. Unless you are doing head/intake work as well, cams just aren't the ticket for adding power to the DOHC.

I'd look elsewhere for power as more for less can easily be found. Out of the box (factory) the heads, cams, intake aren't that bad. Improvements are there to be found of course...but until you've exhausted the other mods I'd stay away from opening/touching the engine. Full exhuast, chip or timing adjuster, cold air intake, etc.... first.

I have cams, and that's my advice.....look elsewhere first.
