Ask anyone... GS-R motors stock point for VTEC is 4400 RPM, secondaries launch in at 5,800 RPM.4400 is the low lift and 4900 high lift, the sound you're hearing at 5800 rpm is not vtec its you're secondary manifold runners opening up. This happens when the secondary runner solenoid hits the proper pressure, which opens your secondary runners up.
