Exactly! Lots of people misunderstand this. VTEC is essentially having two separate camshaft profiles; one for low RPM, providing good torque and excellent drivability, and a camshaft profile for high rpm that has greater lift and longer duration. VTC is a truly variable timing control which allows the camshaft gear to be continuously variable. This allows the valve overlap to be adjusted at any given RPM, which further improves engine efficiency and power output.VTC on the 1.5-T.Theres a difference between that and VTEC.
