Icon6 Vtec engage light on idea!

well while i was at work today doing mindless repetitive welding and grinding i came thinking what if i rewired my shift light from my taco to a nice light that shines up some sort of vtec symbol or something ether on my back window or on my dash somewhere then re tune the taco for exactly when the vtec kicks in... just a thought sounds pretty cool to me i think i might do it sometime in the next fortnight... know what i mean but hard to explain this awsm image i got in my head anyone done anything similar to this

Re: Vtec engage light on idea!

thats a cool idea, and if you put it in your back window like you say you might, i think it should say "VTEC FTW!"

That way if you are racing someone and you kick their a$$ they can see it.., and if you don't win, well, they don't see it...

Re: Vtec engage light on idea!

or instead of a vtec light you can put your home address, your full name, social secuirty, etc.....so everyone can see when you hit vtec, or if your outrunning the cops they know where to go.

<-sarcasm--^

i seen this before on youtube its ok, i lieeeeeeka boost better lol

Re: Vtec engage light on idea!

Don't a bunch of new toyotas have this already?
Like, they have blue gauge cluster lights, and when they hit toyota's answer to vtec, whatever it's called, they turn red?
I think it's cool, but he's talking more of a projection on the back window, like the S2000s have for their speedos, right?
I think it'd be distracting, and honestly, probably not legal.

Re: Vtec engage light on idea!

Wire your CEL to come on when VTEC engages. Been done many times before. I'm sure you can find a write-up on it. And if you want to go a step farther, rip the dash apart, and replace the little film with a "VTEC" cutout so when the CEL comes on, it says "VTEC" instead of a little engine symbol.

its nice at night alright, and its simple to do if your interested
because its only an led light, it draws next to no power away from the vtec solonoid, so theres no interferance with the vtec

at night neck and neck with some other car, then the cockpit lights up blue and you smoke them, it is a tasty little thing, and because its done so tidy, you think its part of the prelude
