    Here's some history

    Setup = B18c1(98)(69000km) hatchcx(95)
    LSD tran (5spd)
    DC airintake
    removed butterflyvalve intake man
    no PS nor AC
    ECU ischipped redline=5800 no speed gov. and fuel curve

    Here's the Problem
    Vtec sometime doesn't kick in. Ihave been noticed from time to time
    vtec doesn't really sound as agressive fromtime to time
    Now one time when vtec didn't kick in it was about 28f outsdie
    started it idle for about 45 sec then let it rip to 5800rpm
    didn't kick soon tried just slowly goin into vtec nothing tried it in third gear nothing
    at a light turn off car and restarted tried Vtec again it hit tried three time after hit each time. BUT note that it sound less agressive than usual and running @ idle temp
    If you know how troubleshot this Please give your thoughts ....

    VTEC will not engage if the car is cold
    VTEC will not engage if the oil pressure is low

    there are a few other things that effect it
