Is it engaging at all? Keep in mind, the crossover on SOHC is not meant to be truly "felt."

How low is the compression? Running low compression without a turbo will cause your car to feel like a turd.

VTEC is either on or off; remember that. It's not 'half-way-engaged'; I could never hear it in the SOHCs but are you sure the solenoid is good and wired up properly?
