if you "fixed" the valves yourself, and i think a honda mechanic would know if you did or not, and your car was under warantee...then youre SOL (**** outa luck). you voided your warantee. should have taken it to honda in the first place.

dont screw it up anymore and just take it to honda to get it fixed. thats if you want a running car that is.

Care to explain the problem a little better. What did you do when the problem happened? Did you adjust something or make any changes? How did you bend 13 valves in the first place? Are there any check lights on? You werent very detailed. It was like hey my vtec is broken please tell me how to fix it.

bluestreak is an unknown quantity at this point
how did you over-rev? we've got a rev limiter, unless you shifted from third to second or something

This sounds more like just a malfunction. Sounds like you really f***ed something up. Take it and get it fixed. Expect it to be expensive and take a while. I think ur screwed.

so let me get this straight...your engine was giving you problems and instead of having it looked at right away you drove it hoping it would fix itself? Man no offense but your an idiot. Word of advise if your oil light ever goes on I suggest you put some in b/c the problem wont just go away.
