I have an R18 and would like to see a light that indicates when "i-VTEC kicks in" (when the high cams are in use) like the Civic Type R has.
Anyone done this and/or have a wiring diagram?

there isnt a high or low cam is there? isnt it seperate lobes?
(I just copied that from another site)
From what I understand it's one cam with 2 different sized lobes.
Anyway, I like when my green "ECO" light comes on in my Pilot when running on 3 cylinders instead of 6. It would be cool to monitor vtec in the civic too, just to know when it does the changeover.

You can't even feel/hear vtec in the R18, I'm not exactly sure what the point of a light would be. "Hey look, my gas economy just kicked in!"
Exactly. I can see how its a nice feature in the Pilot... but I dont really see how it would be beneficial in the R18s.

But hey, if someone wants it... might as well see if its available

I too have a '06 Pilot - and yes with gas creeping over $3.25/gal - it is nice to see that ECO light come on.

I think the point of the request is to know (on a R18) when you are being fuel efficient versus being speedy.

Count me in as interested as well . . .

theres a video on youtube of a corolla xrs that has a tach that changes backlight color when toyota's variable valve timing kicks in... its really cool looking actually

it would be sweet to have the tach get super bright or something when you're in vtec (im talking about the Si though.. lol)
