    Other than throw a CEL for no vtec, no. Mine were switched when I bought my new car, I drove like that for a week before I got it all ironed out.

    Check Engine Light, when the ECU doesn't see the right signals, it sends out a code in the form of a CEL to tell you what's wrong, or that something is wwrong.
