anyone know if theres any way to bring the valve time lower so it kicks in earlier??

when you say kicks in earlier what are you meaning? the rev kick at 5k? if so, a remap would be the way to go. CAMs would also be another option.

ye it kicks at 5k but seems too long to wait, be nice if could get it at 3k or even lower?

Valve timing is for emmisions iirc.

The 'kick' is when the engine is naturally at its most efficient

not quite. It's when it comes off lean running. It's run lean fairly high up the revs for emissions, so there's a torque "hit" when it gets the fuel it actually wants

If I remember correctly.

A decent remap may see you slightly more useable torque. More in the mid-range, than higher..

so a remap prob wont bring the kick to lower rpm? but cams mite?

Cams will change the profile of acceleration yes. If you want more power lower down it's either a case of cams and remap to suit, or TB or turbo/supercharger. Obviously the more you spend the better the gains.
