I may not get a 5 port NR...by the time it comes out I expect to be running EP again!!!! I'm not really impressed with these new engines, the power band is too 'peaky' and you have to rev the hell out to get the power. A bit like driving a Japanese VTEC engine!!

Hey, these are Japanese cars! They bend with the slightest knock!!

Seems like you are not very much of a Honda fan! You will start to miss the power of those VTEC real soon... they have stopped the production of SiR... Sigh...
