Up to the purchase of the Ody, I have only driven Chrysler products. A co-worker has a S2000 and he says VTEC kicks in around 6000 RPM. What happens when VTEC kicks in on the Ody and at what RPM does it happen?

The Ody beats my '94 Acclaim with the 3 litre Mitsubishi!

Before even VTEC kicks in, make sure everybody inside the van is fully strapped and head restraints are at the proper height. And if it kicks in - whiplash.


Kidding aside, don't have any idea at what point it kicks in for the Ody but on my Civic, it's 5800 rpm. There will be a mild surge that you will feel in your behind


Haven't tried it in the Ody yet.

I believe the VTEC kicks in around 4,000 rpm. What happens then is that it causes you to grin like an idiot (seriously though, you do feel a push in the back, certainly in the first three gears).

You all make me jealous. I just picked our Ody today and with 100 miles, I still have to feather foot it.

Ah well, perhaps in a month or so.

That's exactly my reaction whenver the VTEC kicks in on my Integra GS-R. It waits until about 6000 rpm, though.

Remember in Star Wars when they finally get the warp drive going on the Millenium Falcon just in time?

In Star Trek when Mr. Zulu turns it up to '9'..and Scotty is saying "it's all we go captain"

In the Fast and the Furious when Paul Walker activates the nitrous and the bellypan falls out of his Eclipse?

In the last scene of the Road Warrior when Humongous activates the nitrous bottles on his home built buggy while hurtling head-long into Max driving the semi?

Well it's not like ANY! of the above:D ..but it always reminds me of my first 4-barrel carb experience...except much smoother...it's a very good thing too especially when it coincides with a tranny downshift!
