i am based in ISB and recently purchased a manual 05 VTI, mileage 119K on petrol, car is in immaculate condition, single owner driven. For piece of mind i changed the following with original parts:
transmission/power steering oil, F/R disk pads, Clutch/pressure plates, F/R shocks, throttle service, engine coolant, fuel/air filter change, spark plugs, engine mounts etc
as per Honda mechanics, car engine is in perfect condition but i am not satisfied with the pickup:( engine sound is noisier and it seems like as it has been hold off by something to perform.
I also feels that VTEC is also not kicking in b/w 4000-5000rpm (i feel missing the slight jerk i used to have in my previous 03 VTI).
i am using 60/40 prem/hioct fuel, also used injector cleaner twice but no use. sometime car knocks as well, i always us CALTEX F-6 pump.
VTI experts i need you advice what to do as i spend an extremely decent amount but not getting the desired output!
