So go to: https://skl.sh/sciencegarage2 Follow Us: Donut Media You’ve seen VTEC on cars, but what does VTEC mean? VTEC has to do with the valves in your engine that help dictate airflow, horsepower and fuel consumption. This Science Garage gets into Cams, lobes, lifters and more before narrowing in on how VTEC works. Cars have single cams, overhead cams, dual overhead cams and even triple overhead cams to help them do their jobs. VTEC is a unique variable cam design that has changed the way we think of engines… get ready, because VTEC just kicked in! Bart teaches us how cars work by blowing stuff up and cutting things in half. It’s a science show for the car lover who’s easily bored. Join Bart as he explains the science behind everything automotive. This is cars down to the atom.

The Vtec, Vortec, Voltec, Ecotec and Ecoboost engines were brought to you by Carl's Jr.... I mean they were designed by the same guy and he retired early. One of the biggest reasons why Ford cancelled their car lineup, was his retirement. Other companies are going to lose traction in the marketplace as well. He still has designs for some great vehicles left over. One of his designs is crazy efficient and will go to the highest bidder, which is a company from China right now.

VVT sucks, This and displacement on demand is on nearly every Chevrolet SUV's and Majority of even the LS 6.2's in automatic Camaros, It's junk

Do I have to dislike because I drive a WRX lol 😂
David Sanchez (25 days ago)
I don't usually do this, but VVT was not invented by Honda. Alfa Romeo and others were using it prior to Honda. Honda did however coin VTEC, and refined it to what it is today. And yes I do own a VTEC Honda, as well as many other vehicles (I am the most unbiased opinion you will have today).
David Sanchez (25 days ago)
And before somebody says I'm wrong, it was invented by an American in the mid 60's. I don't recall the name, but he first used it on the Chevy corvair.

new to this but does a silencer in your exhaust stop vtec from happening?
Josh Marcelino (1 month ago)
Nah you got it all wrong, VTEC is a term made from the Ricers who loved VTEC toys as kids, then they started to put stickers of the VTEC logo on their Honda's, so then Honda did that to attract other people who had VTEC toys as kids
