it has variable timing on the intake camshaft. that's why there is that lump on your valve cover on the left hand side.
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.
yeah that's the one. it's pretty ingenious.barnoun said:
You mean for the valvetronic right? I think that is how it works.
