    get a B series. :p
    Or short ram intake helps it seems.
    I think there is an 'aggresive' cam that will make the change over more sudden and loud.. but it seems kinda pointless if your main goal is to make your VTEC louder.
    To each their own, good win story :)

    Run open header, or with cut outs--that will be plenty loud.

    More pratical though--air intake, louder exhaust, more aggressive cam.

    However, there is no point in having your vtec be loud. I know I want my car to be fast and responsive not loud--The quieter the better, more sleeper, less unwanted attention--especially from the cops and the whole neighbor your probably waking up while doing this shit.

    i mena dont get me wrong..my objective isnt to win the loudest vtec contest but i thought there might have been something wrong with the motor or it needed to be retuned becuase ive heard some h22 before and their not the loudest things but thair a little louder than mine.

    Slap a turbo on it. I'd be much more afraid of a car that went "psshht" than a car that goes goaoaoaoaoaaaaaa

    .........I GUESS THERS ALWAYS AN ASS HOLE ON EVERY FORUM !!!

    i think you need a pair of "spectacles" because if you read what i wrote, i asked this question becuase all of my friends who have h22 or b16, vtec kicks on very aggressively, where as mine isnt as aggressive so i thought there might be some type of performance issue or tuning issue involve but, i guess this question is too immature for some of us "fake" honda-tech out there so i guess i should grow up!!

    There are severalassholes on this forum!

    You said:


    Looking... looking... nope, not a damned word about tuning.. nope... performance...... nope.. I'm fucking blind. Maybe I do need "spectacles"..

    Now, you said you kicked his ass.. so your vtec is obviously working, otherwise, he woulda kicked your ass. Either that, or you both drive shitmobiles. did a geo metro happen to PWN you both while you were racing?

    Don't be a dick.. dick.

    lmao, i think he was refering to spectacle as the asshole, but whatever

    vtec...
    my friend has a 93 accord with the AEM CAI that looks like a chimney pipe, as well as header and exhaust...

    his H22 sounds like a raped gorilla...

    try advancing your timing, or just getting a bigger diameter intake...
    might help...

    Its your exhaust man. He has a aftermarket on. the kid in the GSR probally had a striaght pipe with a fart can on it. I got one thinking it was kewl but its now. my vtec is loud as fuck. My friend has a H22 in her hatch and she has the straight pipe and fart can. there is no doubt in my mind her H22 is hella louader and her vtec is just about as loud as mine. but she has a 2.5 exh and i have 2.25

    My friend's car with a b16 has i/h/e, im, cam gears, a race cat, and a vafc II and his sounds incredibly loud. Its all weak sounding, then bamm.... it kicks in and seirously almost seems like its about to burn out. But then again it's only been tuned by a butt dyno, and the timing is probably off.

    Just do the bolt ons, and you'll get more noise when a differnt lobes hits, just like on all cars, or automotive things in general. The more open and free flowing, the more you can tell about what the engine is doing at different rpm ranges.

    well.....for one bro i wasnt talkin about you i was talking about spectacle but in the process...you just made an ass of yourself becuase you clearly just quoted the portion where i stated i asked this question about TUNING OR PEROFRMANCE issues...but since you've seem to just pass right by that...let me make it more clearer to you:





    so cheers to you....you fuckin blind bastard

    gee....it must feel pretty embarassing to be made an ass off on a public forum.....dumb ass bitch!!

    It's threads like this that pushed me away from all these forums. It always turns into a cockfight. Just some kid asking a simple question and it gets blown out of proportion. Always.

    Why the hell would you be imbarrased? I'm a little word that says "phyregod" and a pic of speed racer. Its not like I farted in the oval office right in front of CNN... And besides, that wasn't the post i quoted. so kiss my ass and get over it.

    You're the one who wants his vtec to sound louder.. ricer boy.

    Why don't you get a set of cams? It won't make your vtec much louder, but it WILL do something towards the performance of your vehicle. You see, there are things that help your car, and there are things that dont.

    ah well.

    you win some, you lose some.. and some just end up a bloody mess.
