How long should I wait for the break in period before I can try this thrilling activity for myself?mugen660 said:Maybe it's just me (cause Im a little different), but when I'm on the on ramp, or passing someone, and the VETC kicks in I get this s... eating grin on my face. . Anyone else?
OK. With about 1300 miles on the Pilot, I finally tried it today while entering an on ramp. I was a little bit tentative and babied it too much, but the effect was cool nonetheless.mugen660 said:Maybe it's just me (cause Im a little different), but when I'm on the on ramp, or passing someone, and the VETC kicks in I get this s... eating grin on my face. .

joshr, I must say you have impeccable taste in vehicles!joshr said:vtec is pretty fun, yeah. i'm used to lots of torque down low from my audi, no real need to rev it too high most the time. its fun to rev the pilot up real good on onramps and passing.
Actually you are correct that you should not go at freeway speeds for a long time or even at any other speed. The reason being is that the seals need to get properly broken in and settled. Now as for punching it I am not sure what to saym I guess to each their own, For example my Honda Tech told me on my 99 SI to go for it right out of the box so I did and I do not have any types of problems. Since this is a bit more expensive I am not going to chance anything but if this is the way you have doen the break in you should be fine!!Originally posted by Cleverstupidity
I was always told when your breaking a engine in, you want to punch the accelerator from time to time. I was always told it was worse breaking a engine in if you drive at highway speeds for long times without accelerating
