My car SOUNDS like it has Vtech, I know it does'nt. My car was silent until I got an intake and took off the silencer. Now when I punch it, it sounds normal until I hit 4000 RPM and the motor gets much louder. It sounds like a very deep G35 or 350z motor, I love it. I know Legends dont have vtech and I dont have the money to drop in a NSX motor. I'll try to get a video clip of the tach while driving, its very noticable from inside and outside the car. Did anyone else notice this?

Technically, no car has vtech because that's a telephone company.
funny guy...

Fees shorty fees...

Mine is just loud. If you have just an intake it is noticable, but if you have exhaust they should cancel each other out somewhat.

its not VTEC, its the VIS (Variable Intake System) which was pretty much the predecessor to VTEC. It uses 3 butterfly valves in the intake manifold instead of an extra camshaft. Its not similar to VTEC, but pretty much serves the same purpose.

Actually VTEC has nothing to do with a second cam. It is all hydraulic and controled by a solenoid attached to the side of the head. Some of the mid 90's civics are VTEC and SOHC.
