What is VTEC crossover?

Theory. The VTEC crossover point is determined by overlaying the low and high cam torque curves. The optimum cam angle for maximum power on the low cam at the VTEC point is often 20 to 35 degrees less than the cam angle for optimum power on the high cam. The cam angle rotates at about 10 degrees every 10th of a second.

The Spoon vtec controller is available for 92-95 EG Civic.

Which is better i VTEC or VTEC?

Intelligent Variable Timing (and lift) Electronically Controlled (iVTEC), is a system that combines VTEC and VTC into one unit. The VTEC part of the system allows valve overlap to be adjusted at any moment, resulting in much greater efficiency and slightly better performance. …
