You have a Vtech Engine? Wow, man first there's Vtech CORDLESS PHONES, then engines. I wonder what that Honda VTEC engine is like...

Do you know what, I broke a couple of ribs with laughter then! Not.

Interesting. The phone guy was right, it's VTEC. And did you have a Japanese 1992 CRX or something, with VTEC?

I've got a 1998, 2.2 litre, prelude automatic. I've had the car for 2 weeks now and there is one thing that's bugging me. the car limits at 120mph. Is it a problem with my car alone or are they fitted with a limiter from standard? any suggestions would be great, thanks.

You shouldn't be going 120 miles per hour in your Prelude or any car for that matter. A speed governor should be a non-issue for you.

Your Vtech sucks because Honda made the only one in the world for you. but our VTEC rocks because Honda made a lot of this and everybody drives it.

A couple of years ago, it was said that not one single VTEC engine produced had had a major fault as yet. I suspect this is still the case. So show the engine some respect, its one of the best the motoring world has ever produced.

I think Honda actually meant that they hadn't heard of a single failure of the vtec system, not the motor as a whole. In fact a friend of mine has a 98 vti with a blown head gasket and ruined transmission, on a car with less than 100k miles.

How is it the Vtec engine's fault that you blew it up? Why wouldn't you never buy a Honda vtec again?

Its pretty obvious what happened.. the previous owner probably beat on it without maintaining it, and got an oil leak. Then this guy bought it low on oil and ruined the motor. This is not Honda's fault.
