    Recently, my car has been kind of studdering when engaging into vtec. I believe it's occuring at engagement point and sometimes at 7600 rpm. I'm not sure if it's cause i'm low in oil or something....This is a jdm h22a in an EG. I'm running a chipped p28 and its chipped for vtec at 5500 and no rev limiter.I need help to figure out why my motor is studdering. thanks

    Low oil could cause vtec not to kick in. It never hurts to do an oil change anyway. Change it and run it again. It could solve your problem.
