Hondas do not use a 3d profile that will shift from one side to the other depending on the RPm. They have an extra lobe on the cams that will get pressed when the oil pressure increases enough and it eather completely move to a different valve or open a seccond valve in adition to increase performance

Its alluminum as opposed to plastic, the runners on the inside are still the same plastic as it was before...

I was thinking more along the lines of the Internals are basicly unchanged... There were a few improvements, but you have the same 3800 engine..
