this isn't a general knowlege section mang, all that stuff can be found on the Ref section or by using allmotor's link (took me two minutes). That being said if you have the internet your generally only a search engine away from finding what you want to know. Someone has written it down, somewhere.
EDIT: damn Silverchild you beat me to it.
i totally was thinking that as i scrolled down
good one silverchild

VTEC= the camshaft has a "dormant" third lobe for every cylinder, the valvetrain also has a third hydrolically actuated lifter for evey cylider that coincides with the lobe. At a given rpm(specified by the ecu) the third rocker is actuated which engages the third lobe which has larger specs. Effectively allowing more air/fuel mixture into the combustion chamber, resulting in more power. That's it. If you understand this then have fun playing with vtec; if you can't understand then either sell your tools or your car.
