the zetec is completely different than the vteck! or whatever the hell it is called. Completley different in every way. The SVT version of the zetec motor has variable cam timing, but not the variable valve lift. That is where teh similarities end.

Just cuz the name sounds similar doesn't mean anything. The zetec engine has no vct nor is there any sensor for any such action. There is nothing variable for the zetec. like Captain said, the SVT has vct on the intake, which is totally different from a honda v-tec engine.

What process do you want to know more about? The SVT vct? If so, on the SVT, the intake is dual-stage, meaning is can change runner length, utilizing short runners for low rpms for torque, and at higher rpms the runners plates or whatever open to become long runners, yielding a very good high rpm power band.
