This is the best bit of info ever related to a dual vtec setup! (should be all P2J ECU's at least), and this dude explains the "no egr thing" on my setup..

Hence my econo light "smiley light":

this stuff took me forever to dig up from around the interweb, I'll gladly share it with you here

The other big trick, at least for my setup was getting the right ECU. It ran like dog poop, either at idle, or at high or low rpm's or all the above until i got the dual vtec ecu.

I run a 37820-P2J-J62 (jdm dual vtec lean burn cvt ecu). the trick is that this ecu is independent of the traction control module! I don't have one. What I do have is the one thing all automatic hondas of this generation have, a 3 wire idle air control valve on my manual car. I pinned that thing to the ecu just like the stock 96 civic lx would, and viola!
