Hey
I was just wondering. Does getting a turbo affect v-tec in anyway? because my friend's telling me that his cousins friend got a turbo on his integra GS-R and it disabled vtec or something...

Don't know about the turbo side, but the SC side it makes life just that much more enjoyable.
You have the best of both worlds, what's the problem? Except for the high compression ratio.

I think the aggressive cam profile is better for power production. If anything, the very conservative pre-VTEC cam profiles prevents any meaningful power production before 6000 RPM. Just make sure proper tuning is done around the area where the high lift cams kick in initially and you should be fine.
