if you get a v-tec controller this will change the timer for the v-tec to cut in also get the car put on a rolling road this will be one way of findin out if its down on power

a lot of people are dissapointed with the 1.6 vtec engine. the controller will definitely sort it out

i think the problem is that you dont have a controller as they dont come standard. think th vtec only cuts in a 6krpm standard. type vtec controller into yahho and you will find them

the vtec cuts in at 5800 how far do you rev the car maybe thats why u feel its down on power if you rev it to 9 and change up you should still be in the vtec thats with a std box if its a eg6 civic you can run it next year as the are out of homolgation but as far as i know the cant be used in a homologated car
the are also very hard on the engine i know someone who built a load of civics and he tried them and the just blew engines on him
also what type engine is it there are a few different types could be just a tired engine
