    whoa...just slow down...

    Read what you type and try to ask your question again. All i got is you have a vtec motor that isn't making the power you want it to.

    So you have a two stage VTEC head, that shouldn't be too difficult to wire up. I'd see if you can find a couple of wiring diagrams (one for the stock engine and one for the new engine) and cross reference them. Provided you have the correct ECU for the new engine, you should only have to run a couple of wires to get the second solenoid working.
