    sorry, this question is in the wrong forum, but i dont know where else to ask this.... maybe some of you remember me, i was an admin here a while ago, im 85percent... anyways, i jus bought an S2000 about a week ago, and recently the VTEC has been sputtering... like when i floor it, the VTEC will go on and off over and over... when im above 6K rpms, you can feel the engine lag.... so i took it to the dealership, so they could plug the ECU up to a computer and figure out what was wrong-- they said that one of the valves was running without VTEC (i thought it was a fuel injection prob) , so it took them four days to "fix it"...... got the car back yesterday, and the same sh*t is happening again... i dont know what the problem is... any help is appreciated.. tanks B)
