according to Hondata, k20a crossover is at 6100

so probably 5800 is for type s and for itr

Its a toss up...I got conflicting info. when I was in search of the Type R ecu vtec engagement point. WELL, now that I am running the dc5r ecu I would have to say vtec is at 5800 just like the dc5 ecu. BUT its difficult to tell because I dont have a huge vtec jump with my current mods. 5800 / 6100, both are believable. I would email Hondata to find out 100% for sure.
Like I said, I am running the dc5r ecu and I cant tell for sure. :dontknow:

I thought you had a problem with that ECU. Did you get another one?

My engine is basically a type-r, I want the the type-r vtec point. Honda put
a lot of engineering man-hours into the calibration. OEM calibrations usually
have the best drivability. I'll try changing the vtec point to 5800 and 6100
and see how it responds. I've got it at 5600 right now and it seems to work
OK. Going lower with vtec actually feels like I loose power. The
engine doesn't really have a lot of power until it hits 6000 rpm.

:cool:
Yeah, that k20a3 ecu I got refunded for...I picked up a 'real' K20a ecu on Weds of this week. My car is running pretty decent, very smooth power curve with not a lot of flat spots or dips-according to the butt dyno anyway. I hope to have my Kpro very very soon to really bring everything full circle.

Brock, your ride is tiight. I really want to see it in person! :thumbsup:
