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!

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.
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).
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
