i-VTEC stands for Intelligent Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control, a system created by Honda to improve fuel consumption of Honda vehicles. The VTEC system uses two camshaft profiles and hydraulically selects between the two. This technology was invented by Ikuo Kakitani, a Honda engineer.
Why VTEC is the best?
VTEC allows your car to control the intake stroke from high to low. This reduces fuel consumption and increases the performance of the vehicle even during difficult conditions. It will also allow you to reach higher speeds when you would not be able to do so under normal circumstances.
Are Honda VTEC engines good?
Yes, Honda VTEC engines are VERY good because they’re engines that run more efficiently than engines without variable valve timing, literally have two personalities in one engine, very reliable mechanical system, and they have a unparalleled high horsepower for a naturally aspirated engine with just 4 and 6 cylinders.
What is VTEC and how does it work?
Honda developed its Variable Valve Timing & Lift Electronic Control (VTEC) technology to make its cars quicker, more efficient, and more enjoyable to drive overall. The technology’s frequent appearance in Fast and Furious movies has turned it into a widely known meme. Many have heard the phrase “VTEC just kicked in, yo!” but few know how it works.
What year did VTEC come out?
VTEC debuted in the B16A engine of the 1989 Honda Integra XSi. VTEC was introduced as a DOHC (dual overhead camshaft) system in Japan in the 1989 Honda Integra XSi,  which used the 160 bhp (120 kW) B16A engine. The same year, Europe saw the arrival of VTEC in the Honda Civic and Honda CRX 1.6i-VT, using a 150 bhp (110 kW) B16A1 variant.
What is a VTEC TURBO engine?
VTEC Turbo engines come in three displacement capacities: a 1.0 liter 3-cylinder, a 1.5 liter 4-cylinder, and a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder . Initial implementation for European vehicles included 2-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged engine used from 2015 Honda Civic Type R until present, which included Euro 6 emissions compliance.
