Default B16A VTEC Hits Hella Weak

I just got a 88 CRX today with a B16A (I'm thinking 2nd Gen how can I tell between first and second gen) I know it's not a A2. Every time I hit VTEC it hits like a D15, I know B16's are supposed to hit hard cause of the dual cam, how come it's hitting like a little baby? The guy told me it has a P28 ECU I haven't checked due to work but I will tomorrow. Why is my VTEC hitting like a baby kitten?

LOL. I read this shit and just started laughing. You must know nothing important about cars. We can't give you the amount of help you need. Start studying cause all the answers are out there. Pick up a book and start reading or sell the car before it stops working and you realize you don't know what you're doing.

Being straight up. No BS answer.

First if all, you have the wrong ECU unless it's been chipped for that engine. Second, look at a dyno plot for a stock B16 and the difference in power when VTEC engages. Then decide if you're surprised at the behavior.

+1
To the op, I had a GSR, B16 sir and sir 2 & a ls/vtec
The b16s are really good when built or boosted. Otherwise I would stay away from them.
If you stay all motor build the head and get cams and a good tune or keep it stock and boost it.

My LS/VTEC was my favorite next to the GSR. However since yours is in a CRX you can make a well balanced
car with good weight to power ratio.

Sell it, You`re to stupid to mess with cars. Stick to washing dishes and peddling dime bags for pit bull pups.
