Actually the VTEC kicks in between the 5 & 6 second mark. Also, although I'm not as sure about this part, I don't think it has a turbo, as you never hear a blow off valve.

Edit: It may have a Supercharger, though. That may be what the "spooling up" sound is coming from.
superchargers doesn't sound like that. They sound like a mechanical whine. That's the turbo spooling up sound. The clip probably started when the turbo already started to spool up. Turbos don't all have blow off valve noises.
