i wouldnt move the vtec engagment further down unless the cam you are using will provide power in vtec at that low an rpm. going down maybe 2-300 rpms may help a little though with a stock cam. as far as it being a good buy i say yes. not only can you adjust vtec engagment but you can also adjust fuel delivery to a point.
