What is this green plug?

Ok I have just changed my vtec Solenoid gasket (much much better now!)

I was following these (simple) instructions and I noticed that I don't have that green plus:-

Either it's a 4th gen prelude, or not even a lude engine at all so can you pls check to see if you have it just for my piece of mind

Thanks again

Re: What is this green plug?

So you don't have any plug there at all? If you have no plug there at all, that is most likely going to be a problem since that's the pressure switch... I don't even think Vtec would engage if you didn't have the pressure switch hooked up.

Or are you just asking if the plug should be green or not? Do you have a grey plug there, or some other color? I wouldn't worry about the color not being the same... I would worry about there not being a pressure switch there at all...

Is vtec engaging?

Strange.

Edit:

Should have looked before I responded. Is the motor a JDM motor? Most JDM Vtec solenoids don't have a pressure switch.

If you have a Japanese ECU you don't need to worry about it, it won't be looking for it.
If you have a modded ECU you can tell it to just ignore that.
If you have an OEM USDM ECU, just get a USDM Vtec solenoid with the pressure switch and throw it on there.

So, if you got a JDM H22 and it came with the JDM ECU, and you're not throwing any codes, just ignore it.
