^ considering its a freshly rebuilt motor and you burned 1L of oil in 1k. That sounds like a problem to me even though you're using MAD VTAK all day long.

well definately check for leaks first. Didn't you replace the valve cover gasket when the motor was rebuilt?

I don't think a VTEC solenoid will result in a loss of 1L of motor oil.

There is increased oil consumption when you used forged pistons. They burn more during cold starts because of the rate of expansion when compared to stock cast pistons which have low expansion.

Having said that i would do a leak down test both hot and cold and compare. At the same time i would inspect your plugs for signs of consumption to see if 1 cylinder is more fouled then the other.. and while the plugs are out i would inspect the condition of the cylinders with a bore scope to look for signs of scoring.

It would have to be a pretty large leak to externally leak out 1L/1000km.

drove another 700km in the last four days or so... oil level is same.


and yes this involves high rpm vtec bursts too. i check the plugs and there isnt any fouling actually.
