TÀI LIỆU - Tìm hiểu hệ thống VTEC của Honda (VTEC Explain)

VTEC is one of Honda's greatest invention. Though an undisputed expert in turbo-charging as evidenced by years of Formula-1 domination while Honda was active in the sport, Honda's engineers feels that turbo charging has disadvantages, primarily bad fuel economy, that made it not totally suitable for street use. At the same time, the advantages of working with smaller engines meant that smaller capacity engines with as high power output as possible (ie very high specific-output engines) are desirable for street engines.

Thus Honda invented VTEC which allows it to extract turbo level specific output from its engines without having to suffer from the disadvantages of turbocharging (though VTEC introduces disadvantages of its own).
