Vtec

I got on my 98 yesterday to try and convince my friend Frank to sell his wrangler and get a car, so my 2-3 vtecs a week were used up instantly lol. But anyway, I raced my boys automatic v6 legend starting at 40. When I hit 5.5k in 2nd it sounded like normal, but when I hit 6k in 3rd and hit 4th it literally sounded like a turbo when I shifted. Frank actually asked me if it had a turbo and he works on jeeps all the time(not that hed know shet about a car though hahahaha). I played it cool but I felt like something wasnt right...it seriously "spewed" like a turbo does..

The car has a 2.5" catback exhaust, v2 intake, aftermarket cams, and thats really it. Did I phuck somethin up....lol.

I might post a video of it again but it might have to be a couple days :P

Thats also the only time Ive gotten on it that hard since Ive owned it (only a month) and its the first time I heard it.

Re: Vtec

yup, it sounds like its due to the cold air intake. when i put mine on i noticed a whistling sound when i hit vtec. it is due to the valve overlap when in vtec i believe.

Re: Vtec

Yeah, mine has cams, exhaust, V2 (and a crap load more work done, LOL) and I took a friend for a ride when I first got it. He goes "DUDE! It sounds like a turbo!" I'm thinking it's the combo of cams and the intake maybe.

LOL! Yeah, he's owned a couple actually. He didn't mean exactly, but it does have some turbo quality sounds.
