Is there such thing as a VVT-i Controller?
I know Honda has a VTEC Controller,cause I had a friend that has a SI and he's got his set at 2500rpm for his VTEC to kick in, but Like is there one for us, cause I wouldnt mind the VVT-i ( grin lol) to kick in at that early period of time.

VVT-i has only variable valve timing. Even if they had one, it would be useless on a GT.

toyota has set vvt(l)-i up to be at the peak range for it. there's no reason to change it.

The new SI does not have lift BTW. And having it set at 2500 doesn't make any sense. Valve overlap at low RPM might be causing him to actually lose power. And I'm assuming he has a 99-00 SI, or else he's an idiot that just wasted money buying the controller.

so true. There's a reason why Honda didn't put the VTEC point that low.

Damn ricer morons.

Yeah my friend is a idiot, and yeah he has the 00 SI and he thinks he can outrun lighting if he invested money in that VTEC and what I say is more power to him and kaboom
