VTEC Engines

Q: What does the acronym VTEC represent? I have seen it describing an engine.

A: VTEC stands for Variable valve Timing and lift Electronic Control. This system allows the engine to optimize its power and torque at different engine speeds (rpm) by variably adjusting the valves. This makes the engine very responsive, but also efficient and lower polluting by burning an extremely precise air-fuel ratio.
