Look right underneath the solenoid itself. There's a gasket that can be replaced. I'd imagine it can't be more than a few bucks at Honda.

A lot of people are going to rag on you for saying VTECH. It's VTEC.

The D16Y8 is a horrible motor for all motor. The only way to get a lot of power out of them is forced induction.

If you want street fast stick to a turbo. It's going to take deep pockets to build a fast n/a motor. Unless you have plans of swapping a k series in. But with d and b series motors vtec or not it takes alot of money. And most times a finely tuned boosted car will still say goodbye to you on the streets, body kit, neon lights, and an airplane wing and all.
