You are seriously damaging your engine. It's because when you go into vtec and it starts pumping oil (and suppose to have more oil pressure) the oil just foams and causes oil pressure to drop, who has triggers the code and disables vtec until the code is cleared. I have seen this code go ignored on a couple insights and it results in dead engines.
