hey so i got my motor in and on the jdm d15b the distributer and vtec are not connecting. I put the d16y8 intake mani on, should change the 3stage vtec to the y8 one?

from what i recall you dont change the vtec solenoids you just wire up the second stage like normal vtec then use an rpm switch to activate the first stage around 3,000 rpm.

without using the correct ecu below 3,000 rpm will be rich for that motor unless you keep the first stage on all the time which will lead to burning out the solenoid.

this is one of the reasons no one uses these motors.
