ive never heard of this before, id like to know where you found this out. thanks.barnoun said:The GA16DE has VTC(variable cam timing). It adjusts the intake cam timing continuously so you can't really feel it, but at 6600rpm you can feel when the VTC retards the intake cam, reducing power.
W/ VTC you don't have the variable lift as w/ VTEC. (VVL has it tho). It adjusts the phase of the timing. Isn't the newer systems called CVTC? Well BMW and Ford also use this type of system... I think Toyota does too w/ their VVT-i and Hondas new VTEC systems also incorporate this technology...200'side said:There is something definitely feelable passing 6 grand. I dont know too much about internals (and I might get ridiculed for this) but I always thought it was the second cam kicking in or something. But its the Variable valve timing adjusting the intake cam? Ok.
James said:BMW has it on both intake and exhaust cam shafts and they've been able to do away w/ the throttle body.
You mean for the valvetronic right? I think that is how it works.James said:it's done through their valves tho, i don't know the details but the cams are on a little ramp and i think the entire camshaft moves so the lift changes depending on where on the ramp they sit...
yeah that's the one. it's pretty ingenious.barnoun said:

Variable Timing Camshaft... yeah you have it on your 96.Teknokid said:So does my my 96 GXE have this VTC that you guys speak of?? How is it that it is VTC but it means Variable Cam Timing
