hmmmm...do you have high mileage? i would think that if you do, and the engine is getting a bit tired, youre less likely to be able to feel anything.

It will not engage until the car is nice and warmed up. Then you might have become immune to it, for this is not a common problem. Go drive a different car then come back to your honda and you will most likely feel it all come back to you.

How do you know the vTech kicks in???

what do you mean?? the way to test it -> connect the car to a computer and drive it on highway monitoring the V-Tech Pressure Switch-

If you saying you can feel it - could you please explain to me what does V-Tech do at all?? do you understand how it works?

The problem you're probably experiencing is Transmission problem and not the V-Tech

and the main question is.... why is that a problem?

VTech = 900mhz cordless phone [&:]
VTEC = Variable Valve Timing

I agree your likely immune to it, and high mileage doesn't help.

i know what VTEC does...i dont know what a vtech is....are you debating the fact that you can feel a difference in the pull of the car as you the VTEC adjusts the timing at higher rpms?

yes exactly right, I'm debating that it's not the problem - read the first post the guy said he cant feel the Vtec kick in
you cant feel that, and you're not suppose to feel it - it's not a turbine

VTEC doesnt actually differs the timing its increasing the oil pressure

..i know it isnt a turbine...but the fact of the matter is that once you enter the powerband, which is controlled and altered by the ytec system, you can feel the increase in performance...which is why my buddies S2000 doesnt seem like much until it hits about 3500rpm..and i believe that in the S2000, the powerband is very high...

anyway....if someone cant feel a point in the acceleration of the car where it really gets into the powerband, theyre either immune to it, or they know less about cars than you claim...on cars with work done to them, the engine just has a different sound to it once it has reached its peak...
