I recieved a ton of flak for my "vtec" comment on the other thread.

I was told by a service manager at my dlrship that the "vct" or "VTC" changed to a more aggressive profile at about the same RPM that the manifold switched to the short runners.

I have searched the internet, and can't really find a good explanation of how Ford's system does, in fact, work.

I don't know if what I was told is true or not???

Any help?

HONDAHATER Call SVT and ask.
I wonder if the people that test drive these cars have any real driving skill.
According to motor trend the #'s are slightly different.

the vct is a linear system, it starts just off idle and continues to advance the intake cam until just before red line.

sorry, to add to that there is no "other" cam profile, it is all in the advancement, the ECM takes a boat load of inputs into consideration, including but not linited to engine speed and load, throttle demand/ tps accel, maf, ect, the biggest factor is how the ECM is programmed to respond to these inputs.

Thanks focusguy7,

I was reading about it in the "Powered by SVT" book, that SVT so nicely sent me for Xmas, and that's how it sounded to me.

Sounds like a better system than vtec for "real world" driving.

I'd still like to know more about it. Maybe I will call SVT.

I haven't really heard much talk about this book. It is very well written and informative. And the price was certainly right....FREE!!!

Did only '03 SVT owners get one of these books? Cuz I sure didn't get one, and it seems like the only people who did were owners of '03s.
