    New Cams.....thats the only thing i can think of that would do something like that. VTEC is just the feeling of the intake being lengthened.

    :werd: Either your not feeling it because its not kicking in or you got used to feeling the pull of a DOHC motor when VTEC kicks in from another ride. The pull from VTEC in a SOHC compared to a DOHC is pretty minimal. Just my opinion though B)

    When VTEC 'pops' as you so succinctly put it, it is because there is a big dip in the power before VTEC engages. This is a bad thing. What you want is a linear powerband. Although a linear powerband is not something you can brag to yo boyZ about y0.

    i am looking into a cam. this is the cam i am looking at Stage 1 - Features far more agressive ramp rate then stock with added duration.
    Excellent for turbo and nitrous.
    Idle to 7200+ rpm.
    292 / 302 228 / 208 406 / 385

    would this be a good cam


    and when i was reffering to the pop in vtec the only dohc car i have been in is the 03 rsx type s i want my vtec to sound like that :) but i doubt it will happen. besides my intake sounded deeper with the z6 bottomend, the zc is not as loud but i have more compression than the z6. thanks guys i thought there was something electrical i can do. thanks everyone :)
