    yes, they ability to adjust the intake / exhaust timing , usually advancing the intake cam and retardign the exhaust cam in order to gain some power. usually done on a dyno

    that would depend on what camshafts you have and tuning.

    according to the how to build honda horsepower book...

    a del sol made 162hp at 0I, 0E
    at -2I,-2E it made 167hp
    at -2I, -2E, and +4 Timing it made 172hp
    at -4I, -4E, 164hp
    +2I, -2E, 159hp
    -2I, -2E, 167hp

    but thats for a Del sol VTEC so it might be different fo other cars, but its a general idea.
