    Sounds more like someone swapped a vtec engine in it, or as a joke. I doubt Honda would ever share vtec or any of its operation and components.

    Vtec is just a name. Variable valve timing is used by pretty much by every auto maker.

    As we all know "VTEC" is Honda's variable valve timing, and yes alot of other auto makers have their own but not with the name "VTEC", its probably trademarked or something.

    I guess we are talking about two different things... I thought we were talking about the variable timing system itself, not the actual Vtec name lol

    honda did some trading with gm on engines because they wanted to use isuzu diesel engines in some of there cars so they did some trading it dosent matter that they sell gm there engines and trans because this word will get out that they are driving a honda powered car and people will grow to the love of a honda thru GM making there sales go further and further down hill till there gone


    my aunt did this she owned a 04 vue learned of the honda powertrain by braging about how good it had been 148k and no issues and now owns a 07 element
