look up any word, like swag:
Variable valve Timing and lift Electronic Control.
engine's powerbands are limited to their cam lobe profile, by using multiple cam profiles, honda's VTEC system enables a much larger powerband. Not to be confused with VTECH electronics.

a type of head and engine management that combined have less torque than a premature baby turning a hand wrench.
Wow, that egg beater has more torque than my lame v-tec.

VTEC (which stands for Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control) is an electronic and mechanical system in some Honda engines that allows the engine to effectively have multiple camshafts. By having two or more camshaft profiles, low-end torque, and top-end horsepower can be realized. It was first featured in the 1992 Acura NSX and 1992 Honda Prelude VTEC. It was later made famous by the popular Fast N Furious Movie when the Korean guy w/ the S2000 won the Jetta 1.8T.
VTEC just kicked in yo!

A performance engine designed to combine fuel efficiency and power. V-TEC stands for Variable Valve Timing and Electronic Lift Control. Designed by Honda, it was the first engine to incorporate these features. Under 5k rpm it operates like a normal Honda engine. Over 5k rpm the computer varies the valve timing and the camshaft height to keep the engine at peak power. If driven hard it guzzles gas like any other performance engine. If driven like a grandma it boasts the usual excellent Honda fuel efficiency. It was simply designed to provide power on demand. Anyone who puts this into their car is wasting money since the modifications necessary to turn any Honda into a V-TEC are cheaper than the engine swap.
Honda kicks ass, no one else did a vvt engine for like five years.

Don't get it confused. These V-tec's aren't Honda engines. V-tec stands for:

Vagina Touches Every Cock

A VTEC is easy to spot. They can either be in groups or flocks, or solo. They typically end up making out with upwards of 3-10 males (or even females), and subsequently having sexual intercourse. VTEC's can sometimes be attractive (when drunk), but for the most part, not really (even when drunk). You don't want a VTEC, they're bad hoes.

the mute 1 has it pretty much nailed except for a few things. first they dont always kick in at 5000rpms. in fact there are 2 stages of vtec. the first stage in very low rpms (depending on the engine(the d16y8 starts at 2800)) where it switches from only using one of the intake valves per cylender to using both. the second stage is what he talked about (plus the valves open wider) but depends on the engine to when the cylenoid adjusts the cam timing and postition. (the d16z6 starts at 5600). Also it is much less expensive to use the head and cylenoid of a vtec engine on a non-vtec block, such as the d16y7 (or the b16a1 for you dohc fans out there). they often call a swap with a d16y7 block and a d16z6 head a mini-me swap. Ecu tuning can lower the 2nd stage kick-in time.
Honda produced engines with v-tec technology to combine power and efficiency.
