    Are you trying to give your D16Y8 three-stage VTEC by simply using an ECU and solenoid from a VTEC-E engine?

    -vtec is vtec. You cant really change it up, you can change the activation point to a diff RPM(buddy club vtec cntlr)
    -the solinoid does not change the vtec stage if thats what your asking. It only opens a port to allow oil psi to push the vtec pins to lock the 3rd cam lifter (only on intake portion for d16, B/H/K series change both intake and exhaust)
    -unless you get a cam shaft, and change the cam profile lift,duration,etc *just a simple explaination

    Well i dont know i guess you are not well informed of a 3rd stage vtec.... Is supposed to work with 12 valves from 2800 rpm til 5500 and at 5500 til red line 7300 work with full 16 valves... is a 2 selenoid vtec also known as vtec-e

    No, actually you are not informed. 3 stage vtec/ vtec-e is only available on the d15b
    and it works by leaving one intake valve is closed on all cylinders during 0-2500 rpm. From 2500 rpm up the motor works just like a regular vtec motor.

    Threads like this make me facepalm.

    VTEC is a fuel economy technology... I don't understand people's logic at all.
