So got the P1259 vtec code, started really lagging in 2nd and into 3rd if I pushed it at all, so I swapped out the oil pressure switch, the light remained, replaced the entire solenoid and changed the oil/filter. Cleared the code and kept driving, now the lag in 2nd gear is back and so is the light. HELP

Go to page one and download the manual. It has step by step for vtec trouble shoot. The part on the camshaft can also go bad, but you need to troubleshoot this instead of just throwing parts at it.

If the VTEC solenoid is bad, I'm pretty sure it would just limit your revs (mine cut me off at 4k when it went out), not cause a lag in acceleration. You've got to have something else going on.
