Just as the title states my rsx slightly hesitates when Vtec hits. If I put it to the floor I don't feel it hesitate. Also when I start my car cold it grinds for a couple seconds. Replaced my starter thinking it was that and it still grinds. I've Read it could possibly be a TCT but I replaced it and all the guides when I put in the k24. Any help on the issues would be appreciated.

Could be two issues. The TCT, the solenoid and parts related to VTEC. The nonWOT hesitation, can be few things as well. Vac leak, plugs, timing off a tooth, tune, and on. Did this start after you replaced something?

I haven't really changed anything, I did notice some vacuum leaks around the intake manifold when I replaced my starter, but fixing that didn't solve the problem. I did the ol spray carb cleaner around all the connections and couldn't find a single leak. I can take my valve cover off, but I would think I'd notice a bigger problem if it jumped a tooth.
