what happens to V-tec???

I'm just wondering the affects of supercharging or turboin my H22. does it eliminate the V-tec, or would I still have it??

Re: what happens to V-tec???

you would still have it and it would make the vtec far more aggressive..or you could go fo a ferrea roller rocker setup (as i learned last week) which eliminates vtec but makes ur whole engine a bit more aggressive without the need for vtec, try using the search button and you might find some very useful info on turbo and s/c applications, and there is several members and mods who have turbo'd their ludes who could point you in the right direction

Re: what happens to V-tec???

its about $2000 for the ferrea setup but ur best bet is to speak to 'Shoofisluding' or '98vtec'..they are the experts on these kinds of things.

Re: what happens to V-tec???

i haven't looked into the ferrea setup...but from what I'm thinking is that it'll ride on the VTEC lobe the whole time instead of having 2 difference lobes.

http://www.horsepowerfreaks.com/part...Magnesium/3854

You can keep vtec with boost. Depending on the cams ur using too.
I.E- using stage 3 N/A cams on a boosted car. The overlap and duration of the valves being opened is different from n/a to boost. Boosted you wanna be able to cram as much air into the cylinder as you can without blowing it out of the exhaust before it can compress and explode.

I believe on N/A setups you want air moving in and out as quickly as possible... Someone correct me if that's not right.

I'm no expert, I just happen to know a little about alot

vtec is a mechanism. Unless you remove the head and replace it with a nonvtec head or you unplug the vtec solenoid then you will always have it.

Or you're throwing a VTEC code, 2+ codes at once, or have too low of oil pressure.
