Hmmm vtec

Got the car back to oem regarding the airbox, except for an ITG profilter. Revs pull all the way up to the limit but there is no pronounced vtec kick, something is happening as the revs pick up quicker over 6000 rpm. Oil is at max, only changed it 2.5k miles ago. Don't think I have a vtc solenoid issue. Thoughts?

Is the car standard?

If you nail it can you feel it pick up? Any lights or codes stored?

Pretty standard performance wise atm, seemed better this morning, gave it some beans in first and spun the wheels in vtec. No lights, will stick the reader in later.

Might be because you've removed the CAI and not hearing it as much which is making you think its not as effective??
