    you can use the D15 water pump... i used it on mine and had no problems
    make sure you remove the oil jet from the D15 block
    RPM activating switches are the worse way to do it .... you will not have the correct timing or fuel maps
    get a P28 and wire it up right

    use the Si timing belt.... if you can get a Si harness you will have no wiring to do (92 civics are all pre wired for VTEC to the shock towers)

    heres the oil jet

    use some nedle nose plyers or a small nail or something... it pulls right out

    If my memory serves me , if you don't remove the oil just vtec will never be activated.

    correct, if you dont remove the oil jet then the vtec head does not get sufficient pressure of oil so that the vtec kicks in...

    otherwise the head just stays in "safe mode" so to speak and doesnt act like vtec...

    make sense :) ?
