VTEC just kicked in yo!

Below 3 grand is cruising territory. Go beyond it and you'll see, feel and hear some serious ****... In every day driving I actually never rev higher than 3 grand.

+1 on the different cam profile. 3K is the sweet spot...it is even more pronounced with a CAI w/tune.

Damn, all this time I thought we had VTEC!!! I noticed this too when I first bought this car. You dont have to go completely full throttle to feel it. Mine is stock, at least to my knowledge.

3' is where it starts if you were to go from Idle to redline at WOT - even pull to the top. But when zipping around in traffic - I like to keep it around 4' so when I drop the hammer I pull away like the devil ! Not nearly as aggressive at 3' when dealing with traffic.
