Do you have a check engine light? Are you using the correct ecu and distributor for your motor?

Well, it could be a number of things, like SFF900 said, first ensure you do not have a CEL, if you do, that could be your problem right there, and also be the same reson VTEC does not seem to be or is not engaging.

Now, has this car been torn apart?? Had a motor swap, and brought back to stock?? Maybe you don't have a VTEC ECU, somebody could have sold/traded it for a DX ECU.

Another thing to think of is the stock tach is sometimes off, my tach is off on my EX by about 500-1000rpms and some times more at random. So that could be it as well, check your speed in gears instead of RPMS. Also VTEC is not noticeable on the SOHC you have to be paying really close attention to notice especially if the car is stock.

Good luck!

If your check engine light is not on when the car is running you dont have any trouble code....
