anyone know when vtec kicks in on a d16z6? any recommendations on a mini setup?
You gave people like an hour to respond, lol. To the best of my knowledge, it's 5500 rpms.
i swear it feels like dayzzz
i think my hampster is missing a leg
5200 i believe, its been a while
5200 is correct. But it varies slightly depending on throttle position, manifold vacuum, vehicle speed, and engine temp.
thanks, any recommendations for a mini setup on when to activate vtec?
You could use an MSD RPM switch, but the problem with that is that it won't advance the ignition or add fuel like a VTEC ECU does.
Best bet is to get a ZDyne (if they're still around) or Hondata reprogrammed ECU. Or, just get a Z6 ECU...
whats your setup?
at the moment its just a stock d16a6 in a 89 civic. im considering doing this on the car and want to know as much on the setup as posible. thanks guys
LoL, a fun thing to do is do what my friend did ( by the way he just ran 11.94 with a gsr turbo on slicks! it was mint ill get video asap), anyway, hook up vtec to a lightswitch just for the 1st day, drive around, when u hit 5200 flick it and fly upto 7500 turn it off, shift then flick it on, its halarious, its like having a nitrous shot a the flick of a button.
