What all is involved with putting VTEC into my ride?
level of technical diffculty?
oh god i dunno, im a noob. would it be in the manual? lol
could it be??? hmmm i really wouldnt know, buddy who sold it to me seemed to know his car. but ill look into it more. how would i identify the motor by model number?
How bout this. Take it out for a drive and floor it, you should feel some kind of difference at 4000-5000 rpm.
i will, thank you
ur from the US right?
ive been trying to learn as much about this shit as i can so here is the scoop. i figure that honda released a 98 civic EX in the USa and the same car as a 98 civic si in canada. does that make sense? i took my car out. as far i i can tell the shit gives between 4 and 5 thousand rpm like ive been told. So you all have helped out much and if any of u have anything to add please feel free to do so.
fuck my engine sucks doesnt it? it has a d16y8.
I didnt know that, i have seen a few sir's in town though.
ok so b4 i ask where to start ill do some research on my own so you all dont have to deal with such basic shit so much lol!!!
Blanco is the man you want to talk to around here... when it comes to building a d-series
This is the engine!!! but it doesnt have a big SOHC VTEC anywhere but i know this is the engine now and i too stupid to find the vtec where Blanco said it should be.Ill have a closer look later.Still looking at things to do to this motor and ill consult soon!

Good to know. Ok I ordered a german v-chip for my car. It does something with the air intake timing i think. I bought it when i was drunk and bored. i know this doesnt attach to the motor but is it a bad purchase???Click picture to go to the details of the site i got it from!!!
i think this is an ecu chip. did u check out the page i got it from??or i guess you might just know....lol
you keep posting in the wrong forum this is EF yours is EK
oh damn didnt know. ill change that for the future. Thanks for filling me in. But in the mean time im ill still check this for any updates u guys post. thank u all again!!!
if your still wondering if you have the d16y8...which you do...you can look for yourself by opening your hood, looking at the left side of your block in the front theres an engine code that will say exactly what your engine is.
