I drove a friend of mine's car to the track tonight, and noticed that her vtec wasn't kicking in at all, so I asked her about it and she said that she has been keeping up with the basic maintinence(sp?). She drives a 97 SS Lude with 69k miles. When i would give the car WOT it would accelerate really poorly in the upper rpms and hit fuel cutoff around 6800, she never drives the car hard but she said she remembers her car being able to rev to almost 8000, I don't know if this is true or not. With the car set in automatic it would hit the rev limiter at around 6800 and keep bouncing off of it, and wouldn't shift. I only held it for a second so I don't know if it would have shifted or not. In normal driving the car is fine, shifts smooth and runs smooths as can be. I got my ass handed to me by my friends 90 Accord sedan automatic that is totally stock, that's when I noticed all of this. I've never owned a vtec equipped Honda, so all input would be appreciated. Thanks everyone.
