    Search "mini me" .

    For starters you'll need a vtec ecu (i.e. p28), along with the proper harness.

    is the ecu just to run the vtec? i was thinking of wiring it (vtec) in a different way.

    yes the ecu is so that you will have vtec... vtec on a controller or switch is not the best idea

    if you run the v-tec to a switch you risk losing oil pressure to the head at high rpm's and you will burn up your motor a lot faster.

    if you want to lower the v-tec engagement just send your ecu to get chipped and have them set it at a lower engagement point (i.e. 4k-4.5k)
