  1. VTEC Slow to kick in.

    Engines and Transmission (9G)
    Hi all, I'm posting this one in the hope that somebody could possibly explain to me as to the reason why the VTEC seems to be slow to kick in when I get my foot down. Usually, when I give it some boot (on an open safe road) you can feel the vtec kick in around the 5000rpm. However recently I've...
  2. Performance Vtec mystery

    I have a 2006 Civic 1.8l I-vtec, How I know if VTEC is actually working? Or is it just not noticable in these models? What am I looking for?
  3. S-Silver My "Polished metal" 1.4 i-VTEC Type S

    Gallery (8G)
    Hi, Just thought i'd show you guys my 1.4 i-VTEC. I've owned the car around 3 months and love it ! Really nippy car for a 20 year old :) You can probably see the obvious mods i have done. Others are: - Superchip from 100BHP to 125BHP (feels much more!) - Full Milltek exhaust system - HKS...
  4. Remap Vtec light after remap.

    Engines and Transmission (8G)
    Hi All, Can't find a thread about this, maybe because no-one else is bothered about it other than me! If I were to get my FN2 Type R remapped by Tdi north, which would involve bringing the Vtec in at lower revs, would the Vtec light on the dash be adjusted automatically or would I have to...
  5. Vtec late kick!!

    Type-R
    i've been looking for info on this but couldn't find it anywhere! I was talking to a colleague in work about the 'kick' the Vtec gives once it hits 7000rpm, then he said it should 'kick' at 5 or 5500 rpm... the lights come on at 5500 rpm but i only get my back stuck to the seat once it hits...
  6. Opinions please on a strange noise

    Type-R
    Hello fellas - not posted in a while, but after some advice/opinions on a strange noise that my type r has developed whilst in the vtec window. It's hard to describe but it sounds like the sort of noise you get when covering up the nozzle of a vacuum - like a super charger or air rushing in...
  7. Other 97 Coupe - is it a VTEC??

    Engines and Transmission (8G)
    Hi all, So i have a 1997 Honda Civic Coupe 1.6SR. I am currently looking for parts for it and have found a few websites but when using my Reg to look up the car it keeps coming up saying that its a 1997 Honda Civic Coupe 1.6SR VTEC...now my understanding was that with VTEC engines, Honda...
  8. Performance Is VTEC noticable in a 1.8?

    Engines and Transmission (8G)
    Hi all, I'm an EP3 owner, and have just bought a 1.8 ES for my wife. Took it on my first good run (on my own ;)) last night and could not notice VTEC engage. In my EP3, it's very noticable, the car screams into life. My question is, is it less noticable in the 1.8 new Eigth gen variants...
  9. Performance Civic top speed?

    Engines and Transmission (8G)
    I have a Honda Civic Type S 2007 semi-automatic. Just wondering what the top speed is on this spec? Also I keep hearing of people doing a VTEC. What is this and how do you know if you have done this?
