The VTEC valve is activated by the PCM and if you had replaced the PCM as well, then youonly need to have the correct wireharness. VTEC solenoid operates on battery voltage.

First you need a P28 ecu 92-95 1.6L vtec sohc ECU.

The v-tec solenoid (single green wire) is run to pin A4 on the ECU.

The oil pressure switch, is wired to ground (thermostat housing is a good option for a ground) and the remaining wire on the switch is wired up to D6 on the ECU. There is no need for another wiring harness, you just need to wire up these 3 wires.

The normal ECU does not have the VTEC function so there is nothing to operate the VTEC valve and monitor the pressure switch.

You definiteely need the P28 ECU as F4I_guy mentioned.

Overheating should not be related to the running or ECU. Check the coolant level, thermostat and cooling fans.

If the VTEC is not working, it shold not cut of. Only performance would be affected. It could be due to othe problems. Is the Check Engine Light indicating?
