just tap into the wire from the vtec solenoid. Use a test light and pinch into the wire from the solenoid and rev the engine up to the vtec crossover point. If the light does infact light up than thats your wire. Tap into it with a male connector, than connect the female into it with your wire crimped into it. Run the wire through the firewall, and inside the car to your LED.

Done.
