Set your VTEC back up to 5500 RPM where it belongs.2Triple0SI said:My vtec kicks in at 5000rpm but doenst really pull at all untill 6500.....Is that normal?....I road in my friends '97 prelude and it kicked in and started pulling hard. Should mine do that? THX.
be careful with VTEC controlers......if not tuned right they can destroy a motor. my brother-in-law put one on his 99Si.......and didn't have it tuned right and it through a rod through his block from not being set right. so be careful.2Triple0SI said:Your guess is as good as mine...I have an apexi vtec controller but I didnt put it on there.....I think the person that had it before me got it and just screwed around with it...What do you think the best setting would be to get the most power?
Yea, well there is a honda tuning shop that can fix it up for me so im gonna let them get it all back to normal.killer B said:be careful with VTEC controlers......if not tuned right they can destroy a motor. my brother-in-law put one on his 99Si.......and didn't have it tuned right and it through a rod through his block from not being set right. so be careful.
that and the H22 does have a bigger motor hence more torque and hp.Targa250R said:Set your VTEC back up to 5500 RPM where it belongs.
As for your friend's car, the H22A4 has the VTEC engagement set too high from the factory and therefore suffers losses in the torque curve just prior. This is why there is a noticeable change in the Prelude's torque curve once VTEC engages. Lowering the VTEC engagement point for that particular engine will smooth out the curves.
Well ive read that there are actually 10 different vtec settings.....2 each gear for engagement point and disengagement...So that could be why.syntetyc said:Since you've been talking about when Vtec kicks in, I would like to share something. I have a '96 coupe LX with a 90' B16a Swap (weird, i know), controlled by a PW0. It's supposed to all be working fine but my Vtec enters at different RPM's each gear.
3rd- 5,800 ...and so forth.
My engine does not limit. I can take it up to 9k with out a problem.
Now I ask you gurus, how's this possible?
