new to preludes and vtec in general

I just got a 1999 honda prelude sh
it already has the vtec controller installed
i was just wanting to know some good tips for adjusting it for just a daily driver around town so i am not wasting gas or doing any damage to the car.
and i would like to know some good tips for fixing up the car like the best places to start, as far as looks and performance.
as of now it only has a cold air intake and the vtec controller.
any advice is great.
and thanks in advance

It really depends if the person knew what they were doing when they installed it.. It can be awesome but I've heard some horror stories as well.. Anyway, let's see some pictures man! And we can further assist you as far as options on what to do.. As far as performance get a GOOD exhaust or have a custom 3" one made.

My controller is set at 4600 L-H and 4400 H-L. Good for daily driving and having a good time!

Re: new to preludes and vtec in general

Most people set it between 4200-4600 It's really entirely your decision.


Do some research on the topic and you'll come across different dyno graphs from different setting levels. Optimum setting would smooth out the power band, but off the top of my head- I honestly don't remember which RPM setting that is.
