so only the type S is vtec? Whats the difference between i-vtec and regular vtec. I raced an si i-vtec and it didn't really seem like anything. I'm just curious because I do not know too much about the honda/acuras.
The RSX and and the RSX Type-S both have the same engine with the i-vtec. The difference is just that the S has 200 hp and more options.
"The RSX is propelled by an exhilaratingly responsive 16-valve, 2.0-liter, DOHC LEV-II engine with a lightweight aluminum block and head. The engines for both the RSX and RSX Type-S employ i-VTEC-, a more sophisticated version of the unparalleled Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC) system that extracts ample low-rpm torque and high-rpm power from the same engine. In the RSX, i-VTEC helps the engine put out 160 horsepower, while in the RSX Type-S, a more complex version of i-VTEC helps the engine reach 200 horsepower, a staggering 100 horsepower per liter. As you'd expect, i-VTEC helps the RSX and RSX Type-S respond quickly while it improves fuel economy and reduces exhaust emissions."
