    I have a 2006 3.5L single port with pauter rods, JE pistons, RC injectors, Motec ECU, Intercooled turbocharged in an off-road sandrail. I just freshly rebuilt the motor and am experiencing a problem with the V-TEC trying to engage at idle when motor is cold, only. I've tried unplugging the V-TEC solenoid and installed a new solenoid. When the engine warms up the problem goes away. Anybody have any ideas on how to fix this?

    Thank you,
    Tom

    The problem is that the V-TEC tries to kick in when it's cold. For some reason the pin tries to engage the V-TEC when it's cold and idling.

    Here are some pics I'll get better ones later

    Might be specific to the 3.5 liter, what engine management are you using?

    Edit: maybe I should read again, heh. It could be your management system?
