please research before you post. Theres a big difference between the two. Ever been in an H22 hatch with all the bolt-ons? No? Ride in one of those and tell me Vtec doesnt give you more power after the crossover.

Vtec (no H) = Variable Valve Timing and Electronic Lift Control
Zetech = thats just the name of the engine itself
The Vtec is a crutch. It allows the car to run with a valve timing at high rpms that would barely allow the car to idle. So Vtec doesnt really give you power, it more gives you a smoother ride at lower engine speeds. If that makes any sense.
