    Ok me and my good friend who i'll call "C" went to a local performance shop in salt lake which i'll call "R".

    So we go to this shop to see if they have a T3/T4 turbo setup for his 93' Civic Ex. We walk up to the counter and ask for this setup and he asks if its swapped, we tell him no. So he says well we have one in stock for the D16 its $1,575,so he buys it with the good ol' credit card.

    We start browsing around the store while they pull it for us. And one of the employees comes out and sparks a conversation with us. He asks if were the ones looking for the turbo kit, we tell him yes. And he asks us what motor its going on, so we tell him a Z6 and he said what motor is that. My friend C and I look at each other like WTF? so we say D16Z6. And the guy's like oh single cam Vtec eh? we reply with a yup. And he tells us that we cant run a turbo if were going to retain Vtec, our response to him was huh why?. And he starts saying that there will be way to much compresion in the motor then it'll blow.

    So me and C are like WTF is this guy talking about, and we try to walk away from him. But he follows us and says im serious it happend to me I had a stock 94' Civic Dx with turbo. We told him Dx's didnt have Vtec motors in them, he's like mine did. And C gets smart with him and says just cause your ricey ass put a Vtec sticker and altezza tails on your car it doesnt mean your cars fast or youve got Vtec.......Im LMAO. The employee just standing there like all clueless and shit.

    The guy comes back to the counter with the setup we start grabbing all the parts off the counter. And while were in the process of doing that C tells him he should realy look into his employees knowledge of automobiles especially Honda's. And the guy at the counter's like ok thanks for stoppi'n in se you soon. So were like alright thanks have a nice day. The employee says good luck your going to need it, trust me on our way out. And C tells him thanks ill come to you if I need to disconnect my Vtec. The employees all sounds like a plan.......we both go out laughing.

    Can you believe this guy?

    i went to a place called Japanese Vehicle Specialist because they gave me the cheapest quote for a valve adjustment, .. so they have me wait about 2 hrs for the motor to cool, then they proceed to tell me they cant do it because they dont have the tool.. some specialist.. haaha.. i lit my tires up as i was leaving.haha

    the best one i ever heard was when my friend went to formula H
    a local "honda shop" because his car had a flucuating idle that we couldn't figure out...

    they came out of the shop and told him "someone changed the motor in your car..."
    he had an H22 with a polished valve cover etc
    he said "NO WAY!!! are you sure?"

    well, we can't work on it, its the wrong motor for the car...
    because it was in an accord

    Everything on the turbo is great we inspected it when we got home.

    The only thing that worried me was the headers, It just looks so flimsy and weak to me.

    According to Honda, he's right.


    Jackson Racing Superchargers do (or used to ) remove VTEC for their installs. The question is, according to Honda:

    Will VTEC handle Turbo well enough and reliably enough to pass emissions, be dependable and long lasting, and not get us into trouble.


    The answer is no.


    So while he's no pro, there is official rhetoric out there that says "No, Turbo can not be combined with VTEC"

    that;s not true.

    JRSC come with no management whatsoever (other than an fmu). there is 0 electronics, thus, no vtec disable
