    I read a while back that some people like to tune with the vtec switched to a point where your not going to hit it, say 10k rpm, and start to build the map from there, Why is that? I come from the DSM world and im getting into the honda world now. What is the reccomended tuning method for a vtec equiped vehicle?
    Thanks in advance!

    If you do one run with vtec "off", then another run with vtec that comes on way way too early, then compare the two maps, you will know exactly where to set your vtec engagement to give maximum power throughout the rpm range.
