Default How VTEC Works

HOW VTEC WORKS

The video is for Honda VTEC marine engines, but the principle remains the same for Honda VTEC automotive engines.

Furthermore, the RPM stated in the video at which VTEC engages is not necessarily the same in your engine.

What is the rpm though. I heard floored it is 3800 and not floored is 5,000 but that was a modded engine so they may of had a timer on it.

no, its the same for each particular engine all the time. but each engine is different from all the others in respect to the changeover point.
