    Why do you want to mess with the VTEC or the speed limiter? "Some guy you met at at Auto-Zone" is hardly an authority on tuning Hondas (unless he actually builds and tunes them for a living). Unless your motor is heavily modified I'd probably trust that Honda did their homework and set the VTEC engagement at an appropriate point. As for the speed limiter, it's kind of like the rev limiter. It's designed so you don't over-rev your engine. Unless you're running after-market cams and valve-train then I wouldn't bother with changing it...

    werd.

    no reason to change your vtec point. honda set it there for a reason.

    and as for speed limiter, the limit is high enough. you shouldn't drive that fast anyways, and to reach that speed on a quarter mile, you will need a lot more mods.
