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 courtesy Honda Motor Company, thanks guys.

How To Perform a Compression Test - EricTheCarGuy
Compression Testing and What You Can Learn From It - EricTheCarGuy Here is a video on performing a compression test on an engine to assess it's mechanical condition. An engines ability to compress air and fuel is directly proportional to it's performance since an engine is nothing more than an air compressor once you take away all the controls. A compression test is a good general test that will give you an idea of the engine's overall health but it does not give specific information on what the problem is should there be one, for that a "leak down test" would be required, here is a link to that video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WgrfT0LFMhc However if you find yourself looking for the source of a performance problem with an engine, this is a great place to start. This test is often overlooked in favor of looking at the fuel or ignition system, I think that's a mistake, if an engine can't perform mechanically no amount of electronics will make that better. Recently, I hit the 500 subscriber mark and I'd like to thank all of my subscribers past, present, and hopefully in the future for that.

HONDA V-Tec Operation
HONDA V-Tec Operation Get the book here: https://www.createspace.com/4321251 Describes the operation of the HONDA V-Tec variable valve timing system. Like never seen before, this animation goes into details on the mechanical principle of the V-Tec system. The Honda V-Tec system is a dual setting variable valve timing system. It is meant to give high efficiency and low power at lower RPM and high power and low efficiency at higher RPMs. There have been a few incarnations of V-Tec, which came out in the late 80's, but their principle is the same. See it all here with high quality visual details. *************************************************************************** ********* Amazon Printed-Books & Kindle: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&fiel d-keywords=mandy+concepcion Google Play Android APPs: https://play.google.com/store/search?q=mandy+concepcion&c=apps Amazon Video DVDs: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Dmovies-tv&field -keywords=mandy+concepcion Barnes & Noble Nook: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/s/mandy-concepcion?keyword=mandy+concepcion&s tore=allproducts Apple iTunes iPad: http://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/mandy-concepcion/id449573393?mt=11





How VTEC Sound Like
This is what VTEC should sound like. The crossover to the high cams should be linear without any power loss. My car was tuned to make maximum power across the RPM range. This was done in 4th gear. I Dynoed 210whp & 154wtq on a Dynojet. Car: 2008 Honda Civic Si FG2 Tune: Hondata FlashPro Mods: I/H/E VTEC kicks in at 4k RPM all the way to a redline of 8.6k RPM. "VTEC (which stands for Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control) is an electronic and mechanical system in some Honda engines that allows the engine to effectively have multiple camshafts. As the engine moves into different rpm ranges, the engine's computer can activate alternate lobes on the camshaft and change the cam's timing. In this way, the engine gets the best features of low-speed and high-speed camshafts in the same engine." - HowStuffWorks Here is my Civic's record at the drag strip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yI3eB-ZJeWo

Customer Raves: Headlight Restoration Kit - G1900 "I recently purchased the Headlight Restoration Kit, and all I can say is WOW. I own a 1998 Mustang GT. It's my daily driver. Here in Wisconsin, cars take a beating. The headlights were in really bad shape. I tried another product that I found in a hardware store and it didn't do much. I was contemplating buying new headlight kits. I saw your ad in Autoweek, and watched the demo on your website. I thought I'd give it a try. I am very pleased with the result. The money I spent and the half hour of my time was worth it. I'll be looking for some of your other products to help bring back the exterior finish. If you have suggestions, I'm listening." J.K. -- Sheboygan, WI "I used your Headlight Restoration Kit and it worked really well. I had a lot of build-up on my headlights and I am definitely impressed with how well it worked. I had tried other products that hadn't worked and am definitely impressed with yours. Thank you!"
