I'm SOOO sick of Honda kids and their steadfast belief that the VTEC engines are the most amazing advancement in the sports car world in the last. I guess I don't get it.

A 4 banger engine.
No torque.
No Displacement.

What's the hype? Anyone?

The point is most kids dont even know what VTEC is. They just hear Honda made a VTEC engine and think "WOW I hope they make a sticker that says VTEC".

They are in Love with it because when it hits 5000 rpm, you get that extra boost/high rev sound wink.gif


Ppl swear that helps a lot........

Mazda uses variable timing as well... tongue.gif as does pretty much every other car maker. Ricers have just over glorified vtec. It is pretty sweet when u think about it though... good mileage at lower rpm and then being able to switch to a more agressive timing when power is needed and not just burning extra gas all the time. (wow that was a terribly put together sentance)

I hope this didn't get started because of me, about the conversation we had in the other topic.

I'm not a honda fanboy. Most people (at least around here) just get a civic hatchback, paint it some god-awful color, put a ginormous wing on the back, and with an exhaust system that sounds like its a dying weedwacker, go around talking about how fast their car is.

My geo has a hemi, thats why I think Vtec sucks.

Actually, I think Vtec is pretty neat, too bad there are better alternatives out there from other car manufacturers

( Editted by Rylinkus) thay fuck up hondas so bad like thay have a red civic and a blue hood and a green body kit and thay will think its cool man i dont get it at all.So dont hate on the kids that have a good looking honda that looks stock buts not.

I personally dont care for Hondas, most because it seems like everyone has one. Its the kind of car high school kids get, because its all they can afford, you know what I mean? Anyway, the only reason Id ever get one (I wouldnt though) is for the reason they were built for, to be fuel efficient and economical.
If I was gonna rice out a car, it would be something with power, like a Mustang GT or a v6 Altima.

Assuming the role of moderator for a sec here.

OK, hijacking my post with this shit over whether or not he has a car is lame. Several posts deleted sine they contained no relevant info. I left the pics.....

ALSO, racial sterotyping will not be tolerated in ANY form here. I don't think ANYONE can claim that ALL Cubans or Asians or the Dutch all mod their Civics in a similar manner. I'm not trying to be an ass, but it's simply not needed and is gonna cause problems.

Lastly, If anyone has an issue with a post dissappearing or anything to that effect feel free to PM me. Don't bring it up in the thread.

Thanks

Moderator mode off.


My Honda issues have nothing to do with this board or nyone on it. Honda makes some very nice cars. Just not sports cars. The magic of VTEC fails to make it a worthy sports car in my mind.

Here's my take on VTEC. Almost EVERY car now uses neat tricks to help both low and high end. Mazda had the VRIS system (Variable Resonance Inake (Or Induction) System.) around the time Honda started VTEC. They had Another setup similar before, but I can't think of the acronymn. Either wayseveral car companies use Variable Valve Timing and such now.

The biggest arguement I get prmoting VTEC is that it's produced wonderful HP/L numbers in an N/A engine. While this is a admirable feat, if it's HP numbers are no better then that of say a Z28 which is RWD, has more HP and TQ, and still get's similar gas mileage then whats the point? While 200 HP in 2 liters may be a nice though, I'll take the 300HP car for my money, even if it requires more displacement to do it.

BTW, the engine is a VTEC. My phone is a V-TECH. I'd assume any honda guy would know.
