Honda has been basically marketing VTC as VTEC world wide. I thought maybe US patent laws et al prevented them from lying to the US consumers. Looks like I was wrong. There is no VTEC on the 1.5.

VTEC has to have lift or it ain't VTEC.

Just like my last "hemi" Challenger that did not have a hemi engine. Sad when the high heals in the marketing department take over. Sure VTEC never specifically said lift in the acronym. We all know what VTEC is and how it works. This piddling cam phaser is a sad excuse.
