Did not check since I'm on blackberry, but the point of vtec switch is to engage it sooner...entering the performance lobes instead of economy based ones.

lol.. thats not what happens in the video..

He turns it on and the car starts and stalls.. over and over.. turns it off, and the car starts fine.

umm, isnt that kill switch?.. and if it is.. whats the point of it mounted right beside your ignition??..

video worked for me know and all i really gotta say is: hmm... interesting.

i think the reason its stalling is because you cant engage vtec at idle rpm, you need to be actually driving

That's assuming it's a manual vtec on switch.
What is the point of this? If you've seen dynos of when vtec kicks in, it drops in power when it engages, then it kicks back up. In reality, engaging it at such a low rpm is useless. And depending on what ur running, many cases engaging it below 3k might not even work, engine would just cut out and stall.
