Well, I just finished installing crower stage 2 cams on my 2k1 a few hours ago. I'm going to wait a few hundred miles before I really get on it, but I blipped VTEC a few times and wow !!! It hits twice as hard and quite a bit louder, I love it! Can't wait to pack on a few more miles. Anyways, I did the install myself and readjusted the valves back to spec, but I did notice the valves are louder than before, is this supposed to be? There is no way to adjust the VTEC lobe rocker, correct? I will wait 500 miles or so and recheck the valves again, but I am just wondering if anybody else with cams noticed considerable more valve noice. It's not too loud, but definately noticable.
