    The rywire vtec harness is a direct plug in. If you have the solenoid, and pressure switch connected and a vtec ecu then it should be working and kicking in at 4500rpm.

    ill bet its looking for the pressure sensor.... on stock maps you must have it for vtec to engage, and just because its chipped doesnt necessarily mean the ecu is omitting sensors. i mean hell i run my car with no o2, iacv, or vtec pressure sensor but i chose to delete them. with programs like neptune, hondata, and i think even on chrome you can get rid of whatever you dont need.
