I just got back from meeting a guy selling is 98 ITR (120k miles, DD). We agreed on the price and am getting my money together. He has all service records from day one (very well maintained), all original books, and a 98 itr bra.
. When we took it out on the road i could smell a little bit of a burning smell after vtec engaged. I did not notice any smoke from the car nor did my brother (my car inspector). we definitely smelled it, but it wasnt overwhelming. He doesnt drive it much anymore and my brother said that was the reason. (just carbon stuff from the car burning off).
Im asking for any input. Is the vtec in the fritz, or is this something i shoudl worry about. i dont want to end up buying it then having to rebuild the engine or install a new vtec.
