It's all to do with the cams in the engine. Don't really know what model you have but basically 3 stage is when you drive, the 1st set of valves lift (basically normal driving). As the rev range increases, the 2nd set of valves lift giving more power and feeling a slight "boost". When you hit the maximum rev range (usually between 5k-6k) the 3rd set of valves lift and give you that final boost in power. It's all about the timing and which gear you are in to reach the 3 stage vtec.
