VTEC (which stands for Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control) is an electronic and mechanical system in some Honda engines that allows the engine to effectively have multiple camshafts. As the engine moves into different rpm ranges, the engine's computer can activate alternate lobes on the camshaft and change the cam's timing. In this way, the engine gets the best features of low-speed and high-speed camshafts in the same engine.

Variable valve Timing and lift Electronic Control. What happens is when you rev the engine up to say 5,500-6,000 rpms, this VTEC kicks in and opens your valves more to suck in more gas and air, making you go faster from 5,000-redlining at 8,000 rpm (well that's on a acura GS-R and RSX-type S)
