Hi all

Tried searching but to no avail.I did a mini me with a D15B head on Y8 sub.Now I was disappointed with the figures I got and it has been firgured out that the vtec does not work because of the oil feed.

Any assistance as to how to solve this issue and get my baby driving the way she should.

eish :hammer::roll:

my 6c worth


VERY IMPORTANT: If you have a D15 block (or any D-series block with an oil jet for that matter), you need to make sure that you remove the oil jet between cylinders 2 and 3 when you do this swap. If you don’t, you won’t have VTEC. I forgot to pull the oil jet out the first time. You won’t get a code, your ECU will say your solenoid is fine and everything is working great but VTEC will not actually engage. Make sure you remove the oil jet. I took a screw, screwed it into the oil jet, and then pulled it out with a pair of pliers.

With the oil jet in:
