    The recommended setting is factory, Honda engineers know better than anyone about vtec settings, they didn't just guess. If you have modded your motor beyond I/H/E, then you could gains from changing the engagment point higher or lower on a dyno.

    But to set it to engage vtec is L->H and to disengage is H->L.

    cant forget those pullys. that shit is gonna be fast. you ask for advice, don't waste your money on stupid shit like pullys, just rip out your ac and power steering so there are no pullys to get. you shouldn't be using an underdrive main pully on a dd anyway. it can and will prematurely wear the main bearings.

    I agree, the pulleys are a waste of money. I had to learn the hard way cause the underdrive pulley caused me to spin my bearings on my previous motor. Spend your money on something better than bolt-ons to get some real noticeable power.
