    No , dude you don't understand. Your VTEC should kick in at 4900 RPM FROM THE FACTORY!!! . If you need a vtec controller or a chip to get it where it's supposed to be you have bigger problems.

    Dude, it probably is kicking in at 4900 rpm, but you just can't hear it until you get higher in the rev range. I would perform a simple test to see if it is working at the right RPM. Tap into the wire going to the VTEC solenoid, and run a wire into the passenger compartment, and hook the wire up to a 12v light or LED of some sort. Of course you have to ground the other wire of the light to a suitable chassis ground. Warm up your car, take off, shift into second gear at somewhere around 20-25 MPH and punch it. The light will light up when the VTEC engages. See if it lights up at the correct RPM. If not you may have a faulty VTEC solenoid, plugged solenoid filter or incorrect ECU. Perform this test and let me know what happens :hide:

    Are we all talking about the same motor here an obd I d16z6 or an obd II d16y8? Only states sohc vtec so in all reality could be talking about either motors. I do know the obd II d16y8 factory vtec point is 5700rpms. so you people probably have different motors? ;)
