WASSUP GUYS. I RECENTLY SWAPPED A JDM B18C OBD1 IN MY SI H/B. AND IT RUNS GREAT BUT THE VTEC DOESNT SEEM TO KICK IN THAT HARD.THIS IS THE FIRST VTEC CAR I HAVE DRIVEN SO MAYBE MY EXPECTATIONS ARE TO HIGH, BUT ANYWAY..MY QUESTION IS I AM USING A USDM WIREHARNESS ON THE JDM MOTOR. AT THE VTEC SOLENOID ON THE MOTOR, THERE IS ONLY ONE CONNECTOR WHICH PLUGS IN TO THE WIRE HARNESS. BUT THE WIRE HARNESS HAS TWO PLUGS. IS THIS WHY MY VTEC MAYBE NOT BE FULLY KICKING IN? CAUSE I DO KNOW THAT THE USDM VTEC SOLENOID HAS TO 2 CONNECTORS WHICH PLUGS IN TO THE WIREHARNESS-IM RUNNING A P72OBD1 AND NO CODES THROWN..SHOULD I CHANGE MY SOLENOID TO A USDM ONE? OR WHAT ELSE CAN BE THE CAUSE ??
THANX FOR COMMENTS AND SUGGESTIONS!
