A word used to make fun of a gay-ass ricer. A real valve thingy Honda uses though.
"Dude, did you see that stupid asian driving his Del-SLOW?"
"Haha, yea. What a douche. VTEC! Hahahaha"

vtec:a ecu performance system used by honda this can only activate in 5000 rpm which takes a second or two to reach after that lets just say your little civic flies past the other guy

The VTEC (Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control) engine produced by Honda. Popular among those who modify and race Japanese cars.

Also, a car fitted with such an engine.
Billy was sure that his VTEC could beat a Volkswagen with a VR6 engine.

VTEC is a loose acro for Variable Valve Timing and Electronic Lift Control.

VTEC is a system which optimizes the power output and fuel consumption of a motor. Some VTEC models were built towards fuel economy , while others were for performance.

VTEC is engaged at all times. It enhances the engines low torque torque by enabling a cam for low rpm torque duty. Then crosses over to a high rpm cam profile which takes advantage of the high rpm and optimizes the power there. This in turn creates two motors in one , Honda has used this engineering along with lower powered 4cyl motors to create fuel efficient motors that produce power levels of V6 motors , with a more peppier , rev happy and refined feel.

It takes about .1-.01 seconds for VTEC to engage to the higher rpm cam mode. A big misconception with VTEC is that it kicks in at only one point. This is wrong , it is on all the time. Its setup to give a little surge when going into it for a number of reasons, this is why most tend to believe it only comes on at higher rpm or have VTEC off and on. It is always active at low and high rpm. The main reason it is so effective.

To take into consideration a 5.0 8cyl 93 mustang vs a 2.2l 4cyl prelude will beat the mustang at low and high speeds. This is due to the optimized system and low vehicle weight. This is the basis for all of honda's vehicles. Which provides a cleaner environment and has lower costs to operate. More info can be found on VTEC systems @ superhonda.com
VTEC provides an optimized cam profile for the desired rpm.

lets have more haters in here not knowing what they are talking about.
my HEMI got pwned by a K20A I-VTEC turbo.

VTEC (Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control) .myself owning a honda and tired of all the RBs (RICE BOYS)thinking its some turbo uber fast thing, not realizing if u are accually gonna buid a honda engine not slap a cai and fart cannon on it accually build it will basically do away with vtec, oh and its v tec not v tech, vtack, vak ect....non vtec FTW!! oh and camaros and mustangs suck balls
