What is VTEC and How Does it Work? - EricTheCarGuy
VTEC or Valve Timing Electronic Control is a system that's been used by
Honda in passenger cars since 1991. I believe the 1991 NSX was the first
production vehicle to get this system. It has since been used in several
other Honda vehicles. Late model VTEC equipped vehicles use the iVTEC
system which also changes cam timing as well as lift and duration. The
system is designed to give you the 'best of both worlds'. You get to switch
between 2 cam profiles. One for fuel economy, one for performance. A lot of
people think that when VTEC kicks in you get an extra Boost of power. Not true in my experience. It
does however extend the torque curve to give you more performance after it
does switch over. There is no set RPM where VTEC switches. The computer
looks at several variables and calculates when to activate the VTEC
solenoid. It's a cool system and for the most part rarely has issues. The
most common issues I've seen with VTEC are the result of low, or incorrect
oil viscosity. So if you have a VTEC engine, keep the oil topped off and
make sure you use the viscosity listed on the oil cap. The animations are

struggling to put it's massive power down to the rollers...
