    I have a 97 dx hb with a ls-vtec. When i drive the the car hard going up to 8300rpm it falls out of vtec and code 22 pops up. if i turn off the car and turn it back on i get no check light untill the vtec engages again. Any ideas i been like this for a while. :confused:

    my point was that the OP should look it up before posting. you shouldn't have to do that for him. ^_^

    And to the OP, is your engine built at all, or is it just a completely stock LS-VTEC? I'd be wary of consistently revving it that high if it's not built to handle it...

    Did you build this for turbo I assume? But you're not turbo'd at the moment?

    Slap a new pressure switch on it and it should be good to go, as long as your wiring is right.

    i had a similar problem with my b16a's vtec. i changed the oil pressure switch and it did nothing. what solved my problem was ajusting my TPS, before blowing 69.99 on a oil pressure switch check your fuel:air ratio.hopefully that helps good luck.
