As low as 2000 rpm. The ECU monitors several sensors to engage VTEC and depending on engine load and other factors, it will engage at different rpms every time.

I second that^. VTEC in our cars is for fuel efficiency, not power like it is in Prelude's or Integra GSR's. You won't feel it kick in like you do in a Prelude or a GSR.
