    Was the engine converted to run OBD1? If so, then the VTEC should work. That ECU is perfectly capable of running it. Are you SURE the VTEC isn't working? SOHC VTEC on an Accord isn't the same as dual-cam VTEC on a GS-R or B16. It's much more subtle.

    Any other issues? CEL? Give us some more info here...

    Oil pressure. If you dont have enough oil pressure to the solinoid you cel will set. If your driving a vtec car and dont do your oil change often enough, buring oil, or leaking oild, the oil level will not be high enough to build enought pressure to engage vtec. Ran in this a few time in the shop. Check your oil level. if its full, check the oil passages to the solinoid. If they are plugged or gummed up, that your problem.

    No, Im talking about the oil passages to the solinoid. In the head itself. If your not getting oil threw the head to the solinoid, it wont matter if the solinoid works or not, no oil is no oil.

    Besides that, it might also be your oil pressure sensor. If it is reading to low, it also wont engage vtec. Make sure it is operating correctly.
