wtf is an ecotec
is it like a fake ass remake of a v-tec
yeah it's shit in a can.
the shop i work at had a big poster of the Summitt Racing cavalier, with a picture of the ecotec motor. it looks dumb. it's a cavalier.
cavalier = poop.
i wonder if in domestic forums, if ecotec is misspelled "eco-tec", "eco-tech", and so on, and so on.
NOOOOOOOOOOOO! it's VTEC!
ok does VTEC stand for sumthin or did the japs just put some letters together to make it sound good
Variable Valve Timing and Electronic lift Control
i think that's it....it's essentially a more aggressive cam for the upper RPM range.
eco tec works sorta the same as vtec, but alot shittier. as we all know Vtec switches to a different lobe at whatever the rpm is that its ment to. EcoTec, moves the cam over to put lobes on different valves to get the same result. gay.
VTEC= Very Trashy Expensive Civic
ecotec has absolutely nothing to do with valve timing. its just a name for the type of engine
and before you spew some bs about "well i dont care about knowing what ecotec does/is cause i dont like lame domestic cars lol" just keep in mind that there is nothing worse than a noob that tries to pretend that they know what they're talking about
lol i was unterly pwned. o well i dont care, this is what i was told by my Z22 Ecotec driving friend. So i am wrong. OWNED WAS ME
from what i understand, the ecotec does NOT have variable valve timing- here is the gm press article for that motor
sounds like it doesnt have variable timing- but it may in the future
wrong again n00b. :stfun00b:
its: Variable valve timing and lift electronic control.
eco = economy = slow. thats all you need to know.
its about gas mileage and less emissions at part throttle
Wow, there is a lot of ownage going on in this thread.
i reinstate the ownage that was put on you based on the following statements
you DID say that the ecotec had variable valve timing. that was what the whole dispute was about in the first place. now you want to say that it doesnt have variable valve timing, it has the ability to control the fuel and ignition?
hello and welcome to the modern age where cars use fuel injection, aka the use of a ecu and various sensors to control fuel and ignition!!!!!!!!!!!
no, not in any way, shape or form, is you saying a motor has variable valve timing exactly the same as saying it has fuel injection
no need to get all uptight, i present the clear facts, no opinions here
maybe, but by taking the word "valve" out, you completely alter the entire concept of it.
example- hey everyone, i drive a honda f1 car. take the f1 out, and suddenly the statement is true!!! weak :roll:
nope, no misunderstandings here. fact is, you cant accept the fact that you got owned, like sleeper crx did
and guess what, if YOU know that YOU are right, thats good enough
once again, not once in this post did i offer ANY opinion. just the facts. i find they are harder to argue with than opinion
you= teh n00b
seriously dude, do you not understand that when they talk about variable valve timing, its fucking not the same as ignition timing??
ok- reread the original post and know that they ARE talking about valve timing
and in that one they are talking about ignition timing, mmmkay??
and if i'm a geek for proving you wrong, at least i am an educated one
