iVTEC How it Works -EricTheCarGuy
iVTEC How it Works is a long standing requested video. Back with I did the video on the VTEC explanation I was asked about doing a video on iVTEC which is slightly different than VTEC. First you need to understand the basic operation of the cam shaft, once you have that, and you know a little about how that cam shaft effects performance, you can then begin to understand how iVTEC works. In essence, as far as the Honda system is concerned, it varies the cam 'timing' to optimize performance and fuel economy. Many companies employ similar systems to this but they may perform the operation differently. This video focuses on the Honda iVTEC system. That said, you may notice that the VTEC system on this K series is a little different in that instead of having a cam with a higher lift and duration, it switches between 1 and 2 valves on the intake side. So when VTEC engages on this engine it actually activates another valve in the cylinder instead of changing lift and duration. It still alters cam timing via the iVTEC system however. Once again, to optimize power output and fuel economy. Either way, I hope this video helps with your understanding of camshafts, cam timing, lift, duration, VTEC, and iVTEC systems.

How VTEC Works
READ THE DESCRIPTION BELOW - VTEC (Variable Timing and Lift Electronic Control) is a system developed by Honda to improve the volumetric efficiency of a four-stroke internal combustion engine. The VTEC system uses two camshaft profiles and hydraulically selects between profiles. It was invented by Honda engineer Ikuo Kajitani, and was the first system of its kind. It is distinctly different from standard VVT (variable valve timing) which advances the valve timing only and does not change the camshaft profile or valve lift in any way. The VTEC system provides the engine with multiple cam lobe profiles optimized for both low and high RPM operations. In basic form, the single barring shaft-lock of a conventional engine is replaced with two profiles: one optimized for low-RPM stability and fuel efficiency, and the other designed to maximize high-RPM power output. The switching operation between the two cam lobes is controlled by the ECU which takes account of engine oil pressure, engine temperature, vehicle speed, engine speed and throttle position. Using these inputs, the ECU is programmed to switch from the low lift to the high lift cam lobes when the conditions mean that engine output will be improved. At the switch point a solenoid is actuated which allows oil pressure from a spool valve to operate a locking pin which binds the high RPM cam follower to the low RPM ones. From this point on, the valves open and close according to the high-lift profile, which opens the valve further and for a longer time. The switch-over point is variable, between a minimum and maximum point, and is determined by engine load. The switch-down back from high to low RPM cams is set to occur at a lower engine speed than the switch-up (representing a hysteresis cycle) to avoid a situation in which the engine is asked to operate continuously at or around the switch-over point. The older approach to timing adjustments is to produce a camshaft with a valve timing profile that is better suited to low-RPM operation. The improvements in low-RPM performance occur in trade for a power and efficiency loss at higher RPM ranges, which is where most street-driven automobiles operate a majority of the time. Correspondingly, VTEC attempts to combine low-RPM performance with high-RPM stability.
