Why does my 240 feel like it has Vtec?

Its very noticable 1st and 2nd gear.. I'll hit 4k and ill feel a noticable surge, its not a smooth delivery.. The car is running really good otherwise. I had a similar feeling when my fuel pump was dying.

Could this be because I have 3 inch catback but haven't replaced my stock headers/cat yet?

Besides, why do people think VTEC is some sort of surge? All it really is are the cam lobes moving to a slightly different position.

Yeah you are looking for stuff to go wrong.

Especially with your other thread asking about why your exhaust note "sounded deeper" after your cleaned your intake manifold.

You ask these vague questions like people know your car as well as you do.

WTF. Just relax and drive the shit until something breaks.

Butterfly valve opening up if you're driving an S13. If you're driving an S14, could be you're O2 sensor not functioning right in the low rpms.

Make sure your S14 doesnt have a GSR head cuz if it does then you bought a SE VTEC!!
