    Now I'm quite new to the VTEC part of my Civic. Used to own a EJ9. I was wondering if it were normal that i hear ( just before VTEC kicks in) a whistling noise?


    Please tell me it's normal or that it's cheaply fixed... limited to money as going travelling next year. :Grin:

    A whistling noise is common if you have a certain type of aftermarket intake system...
