Default V-tec engagement (searched)

I just finished a B18c1 motor swap in my 99EK... no cels are being thrown. It runs smooth all the way up to 4200 when vtec is supposed to engage.. but it doesnt, it just sputters and it feels like its red lining.... HELP HERE PLEASE!!!!

In a b18c1 motor iI believe the IAB is opening up or your "butterflies" in the intake at 4400. IAB=intake air bypass. Vtec doesn't kick in til 5600 I believe on a gsr motor. Id check or have your intake looked at IMO.

nope, GSR vtec is 4400, IAB's are 5600. (give or take a couple hundred)

No ****??? Wow...I was misinformed...thanks. I thought the IAB's opened up earlier to prepare engine for vtec and higher output at higher rpm's. Thanks.
