Check the oil level too.
Oil is good. Just changed it about 1500 miles ago with no problems. Im hoping it is the fact that it wasnt warm.

Engine temp must be 65 degrees celsius (149 degrees fahrenheit) before the ECU will activate VTEC.

On a side note, how does the gutted exhaust sound? Video? I've been thinking of gutting my stock and seeing how it compares to the leo vince I have now.
Honestly, It was way too loud. But I did a kind of half assed job since I dont have my welder at the moment. I cut off the ends, pulled out the baffles, then just bolted the heat shields on and installed them, I didnt weld the tips back on. Although im not sure how much quieter that would make it.
But i seriously dont understand how people could run the thing strait piped, I will Admit, I sounded freaking awesome, but I just rode around my neighborhood for a bit (im sure my neighbors loved that) and I couldnt take it. I got it up to about 55 mph and the wind noise kind of took over at that point, but in town it is too loud personally.
I think Im going to just modify the baffles a bit and put them back in, then weld em up. It honestly wasnt much quieter than strait piped.
