Definition

What does VTEC mean?

VTEC
VTEC is a system developed by Honda to improve the volumetric efficiency of a four-stroke internal combustion engine. The VTEC system uses two camshaft profiles and hydraulically selects between profiles. It was invented by Honda engineer Ikuo Kajitani, and was the first system of its kind. It is distinctly different from standard VVT which advances the valve timing only and does not change the camshaft profile or valve lift in any way.
