GA16DE and variable valve timing

Does the GA16DE in a '98 Sentra have some kind of variable valve timing. My dad's b14 Sentra really surges at high revs in first gear. It feels like VTEC :rolleyes: but I'm wondering if Nissan had a similar system.

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.
ive never heard of this before, id like to know where you found this out. thanks.
