Default Vtec Noise

just recently my vtec has not been making the vtec noise u all kno wat
im talkin bout. Im pretty sure its still kickin in cos im still
gettin torque steer and it seems 2 b speedin up when its hits
5000revs.

Iím thinking it cant be problem with my vtec as it seems to be kickin
and its run through the ecu so my engine light should come on. I
think it may be my exhaust.

any otther ideas guys?

Its a 93 prelude 2.2 vtec

Why?

I believe 1 qt.Low oil level will prevent VTEC from engaging.

a 93 model could have a sluggish O2 sensor.(and not set the CEL)
They last from 60K to 100K miles.
