    Have you checked the oil level? VTEC requires a certain oil pressure to activate. Is the car stock? Have you messed with anything?

    Is the oil level good? Also, what is the reasoning for the chip?

    Convert to VTEC. So my buddy and I d decided to run a wire to the solenoid hit and it kick in. Even with no Rev contact through the wire hot we were able to hear it kick. The ECU not strong enough. Need to get a p28 VTEC ecu

    It is a plug and play 1.5 single cam non VTEC to 1.5 single cam VTEC. All plug and play. But found out that the po6 ECU can't hold the voltage at that rmp so I'm going to try a state p28 VTEC ecu
