    get an adjustable fuel pressure regulator - yours is probably stuck and dumping all the fuel into the engine rather than returning some to the tank - we see this a lot on the JDM engines (or any engine, for that matter) that have been sitting for quite a while

    At idle it runs all the way rich, but when i hit the gas it turns stoich. is this normal? Also i have a code 20 cel for the ground and still have no vtec. it's still in limp mode. rev limits at like 7400 rpm or so.

    you need to fix all the bugs then you decide what to get....i believe that in limp mode the ecu make the engine run rich...and retards timing...but i'm not 100% sure..

    My point is that i don't even know what to fix, i have a code 20 which is electric load detector, not a biggie, doesnt effect vtec. But idk what else to try.
