JCN joint communications network (US DoD) Newswire) - Honda Motor Co., Ltd. has further advanced its VTEC VTEC
verocytotoxin producing Escherichia coli. (Variable Valve Timing Variable valve timing, or VVT, is a generic term for an automobile piston engine technology. VVT allows the lift or duration or timing (some or all) of the intake or exhaust valves (or both) to be changed while the engine is in operation. and Lift Electronic Control System) technology with the development of the Advanced VTEC engine, which achieves high performance along with outstanding fuel economy and lower emissions. The new engine combines continuously variable valve lift and timing control with the continuously variable phase control of VTC VTC - video teleconferencing (Variable Timing Control). Honda plans to release a production vehicle equipped with the new engine within three years.
This new system permits optimum control over intake valve Noun 1. intake valve - a valve that controls the flow of fluid through an intake
piston chamber, cylinder - a chamber within which piston moves
valve - control consisting of a mechanical device for controlling the flow of a fluid lift and phase in response to driving conditions, achieving improved charging efficiency for a significant increase in torque at all engine speeds. Under low to medium load levels, the valves are set for low lift and early closure to reduce pumping losses and improve fuel economy.
In combination with optimized intake components, these advances in control technology result in world-class dynamic performance along with approximately 13%* improvement in fuel economy. The new engine is also exceptionally clean, with exhaust Exhaust may refer to:
