Default Why can't I feel the VTEC kick in on my 2006 Honda Civic EX?

I just got the car a few weeks ago. It's a 1.8L and I've put it up to 6500 RPM's and still don't really feel anything. How can I find out if it is working?

You won't ever feel any power from a 4 cylinder low horsepower engine with no torque. If you want torque and horsepower, buy a V8!

You may have a problem with you ecu, Even with a SOHC you will definitely notice when vtec kicks in. And dont listen to those honda haters, they spend more on maintance for there POS american cars than they do on there house.

You shouldn't feel it. If you really feel that it isn't actually working correctly, I would suggest taking it to the dealer and letting them check it out.
