    I have my baby16A first gen and i installed a black neon light hehehe
    for a VTEC indicator my VTEC kicks in at about 4700 rpm,
    the light comes on i hear the vtec loud but the where my PROBLEM begins i lose all my power the vtec push is not their it just seem to die down still running but with less power than 1000 rpm to 4700rpm
    i kinda have a clue that it might be my fast idle sensor not shure because it does run good in the morning i feel the power keep going in the morning when i go to work so it work when its cold but not in the daytime WHATS UP HELPPPPPP.....

    that is actually a good idea for a vtec light, besides the rice factor, I think that shit is wicked cool.


    it could be alot of things, are you throwing a check engine light?

    I was getting the check engine light but it just went away aftera while i think it was cuz my speedo cable was disconnected i got a 89 integra one its way longer any way the only ECU error im getting is #17 wich is VSS (Vehicle Speed sensor) i guess its cuz when i bout the B16A with factory LSD it can with a electric speedo so i had to convert it to cable so im thinking thats why i get that error maybe not shure.

    well im not sure about vtec, I'm having a mental block as to what causes that though. I know I've heard it before

    Hey well i am just taking a wild guess here, but if your ecu isnt gettign a readong on your speed for your vehicle speed sensor vtec wouldn't come on would it? Which might explain why there is no power, becuase vtec isnt switching on. You have to be going over something like 15 mph for vtec to activate or something but if your ecu wasn't getting a reading from your VSS mabey it isn't engaging vtec. Just a wild guess, probably am wrong sens i dont know exactly what a vss is.

    Also if your speedo came undone then started working again, Your ECU might have stored that code mabey? I am not sure, try pulling your hazard fuse and shit and resetting the ECU. Might work also but who knows. lol

    OK vtec light (Wich i put a black light neon as vtec indicator RICE) is going on so that means vtec solenoid is getting power wich i would imagine would start vtec maybe the VSS ( Vehicle Speed Sensor) does play a part of it but i really doubt it i hear the freakin VTEC like a freight Train LOL really loud come on after 4700 rpm in second gear and above i just dont feel the power after the noise it weakens ....Execpt in the morning when i feel i could take on a freakin SKYLINE >:) rofl plz help on any ideas THANKS ........

    i had a similar problem.im sixteen with a crx b16.my rex started running funny at like 5000rpms ,it would studder. It kept getting worse and worse.So i check wiring, spark plugs ,distributor,sensors and everything else except for one thing.(i was throing a engine lite on and off)but it got REAL BAD. to the point where it would barley run.so i pumped up the fuel pressure.that helped but the problem came back.So i took off the fuel rail to check if my injectors were ok.(i had to take of the fuel rail b/c it is a aem fuel rail and to check the resistance u have to take the fuel rail off.)I noticed that when it was off the injectors were TOTALLY blocked.i cleaned the screens out and she ran perfect ever since.(i also changed my fuel filter,obviosly because other wise it would of come back again)well i hope that helped.GOOD LUCK! :D
