Ha ha, funny enough I forgot to change spec under my sig, picked the type R up last night. Anyway, I've notice that the rev indicator only come on after you rev pass 7000rpm, is this normally as diesel is come on a lot lower.

yeh sounds about right, the vtec light comes on at 5500rpm if its stock map. vtec light should be easy to come on.

When you hit vtec (5500 revs) the little red light comes on although the feel and sound of the engine will tell you.
The orange rev indicator lights come on in pairs as you approach the redline.

The iVtec lettering will always be lit when the indicator is turned on via the steering wheel controls.



The Vtec indicator is a round dot that comes on when Vtec engages. I think it is just underneath the iVtec lettering.

Got my I-VTEC light on after playing around with the settings - big thanks to R-2 & Dimplyred for the info.

Took it out after changing the settings just to try it out :), although afterwards when I got out the car, there was burning and strange click noise coming from my rear drivers wheel - weird!
