    I've been meaning to ask what are lost motion assemblies. Can anyone explain to me what they do, how they work, and maybe what they look like. Thanks.

    Basically valve springs for the VTEC followers in your valvetrain. The normal intake/exhaust followers have valves and valve springs to press against so they're not flopping around all the time, but the VTEC followers don't. The LMAs help to control their movement.

    Here- I took some pictures a year ago when I was swapping out my LMAs. I went ahead and marked one of them up real quick so you can see exactly where the LMAs sit and what they look like:

    Ok, I turned this post into an article in the "General Tech Articles" section.
