v t e c is not as pronounced as a dohc. if there is no check engine light, chances are you are ok.

OK with a SOHC it is very hard to hear VTEC. On my D16Y8 with stock tach it kicks in at 5400 RPM's.

wow ht is full of jackasses (and i dont mean the threadstarter)
on a stock single cam you wont hear vtec or feel it, get an intake, maybe an intake mani and with exhaust vtec will scream, not as loud as a dual cam though

Seiously man, you are just as bad as this guy with his retarded question:

Go and get your Barbies and continue playing with them.

You are NOT going to get thrown back in your seat when VTEC hits like f4sT anD fUri0uS y0!
