Changing The Neo To Switchable Vvt?

Ive asked plenty of questions regarding a solution to my NEO ECU problem. Ive come to the conclusion that I simply cant afford to run the VVT at the moment as ECU's that support it are rare and hard to come by. (I priced up an R34 PFC but at $1400nz + sorting out my cut wiring loom + Tuning fee's- i simply cant afford it).

So, I came across a LinkPlus that was already running on and tuned on an RB25DET for $750. At that price a had to grab it. I emailed Link before I purchased and they said, "It may be possible to just switch the cam timing (all on or all off, like vtec), you will have to investigate whether that would be ok, or just make it worse".

So what are my options now guys? How to I go about changing the Continious Variable Valve Timing to Switchable (like the R33)? Is this even possible?

Also, how will the car run if i simply wire it up and start it as is?

Oh, and the reason i didnt just get an R33 RB25 for my Silvia is that this NEO with 80kms popped up at $1600. I was getting quoted $2500 for R33 25t's so I naturally grabbed that NEO.

Hmm, looks like theres not alot of info out there about this. I guess im probably the 1st person in history who is backward enough to to change a technological advancement in a motor back to its older conifguration, but my current situation forces me to do this.

Can anyone put me out of my misery and tell me if its possible to switch off the Continious VVt? My turbo, exhaust and IC piping fitment are being completed next week and ive got a LinkPlus sitting next to me which im not sure whether or not will be put to use. If not, im back to drawing board. :P

I havent thought of that, i will look into this option aswell. But I will need to find a rare neo ecu, plug and part of the wiring loom. Very hard to come by here in NZ. It seems like getting rid of the vvt is the easiest option, but thanks for the suggestion :P
