JDM D15B in EJ8
Watch and listen at the 5600 VTEC crossover.
This engine is better than the D16Y8 in low end but kinda tapers off after 4500 until VTEC at 5600.
I'm getting a Skunk2 intake manifold that is supposed to help out in mid to high range and I'm also getting a VAFC to lower the crossover to maybe 4800 or 5000.

Honestly the vid doesn't do it justice.
My girlfriend thought that I was only going half throttle and then hit W.O.T. when I hit VTEC.
It's nice but too late for me. I need it earlier.

haha its fun to play around with a vafc and set your crossover to like 6500. people thought i had a b16 because of the loud crossover but were disappointed to see a stock sohc with gutted cat lol.

It sounds like its got a decent vtec crossover, sounds good to me. When you get a controller I would lower it to around 5000 and see how that does for ya.

nice man it looks like vtec zooms faster than the y8 does, how much did the swap run you, and is it smog legal?

if u could set vtec a bit lower so it didnt drop out of vtec when u shifted it would be much quicker.

If you go about messing with the VTEC on stock cams you will lose power.

CEL cleared...for now.
Swap is smog legal for IL.
Gettin that that intake mani that should help out in mid-high range.
And Sleeper are you sure about that?

The Skunk2 intake mani is a VERY VERY VERY WISE investment. I have one and you will def notice a mid-high rpm difference.

I know man.It sucks.I need more torque.
Hopefully the manifold will help.
What else could I get to help out bottom end?
