how do you mean weak? less power?

have you checked the vtec pins are still working as they should? Have you had the engine mapped? Did you get the timing right?

You need to get your car checked by a tuner. Throwing in such aggressive cams and nothing else, you can't really expect much. Usually those cams are for high comp built motors. Check your timing and see a tuner.

If you would ask me, "how much power will agressive cams make on a stock engine with stock intake and exhaust and no map" I would have said "not much to maybe even losing power". You can't just throw stuff on your car and expect it to work. The more agressive the tuning part, the more it relies on other after market/tuning parts to work optimally. And always do a remap.
