first of all transmission doesnt contributes to power....usualy with a vtec powered engine the transmission is fitted with a mechanical or helical type LSD (limited slip diffrential)..basicly to reduces wheelspin and to get more traction... and makes turning even better and sharper response

There is no such thing as V-tec transmission. The trans only transfers power to the wheels and makes your car move.

friend of mine had 94 2.2vtec prelude - as has been said the vtec system is engine-related not transmission. the only thing i can think of that you may be getting confused with is the 4wheel steer system - whereby the rear wheels turn slightly in conjunction with the fronts - thereby tightening the circle.

vtec is not type of transmission.vtec is the name honda calls their variable valve timing technology just like toyota's vvti.vtec stands for Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control

there's no such thing as Vtec transmission . the transmission that come in a car with vtec usualy have better and closer gear ratio in them ..yes there is a different ... example GSR and LS trans - SI and DX . it would make you feel like your motor have more because of the better gearing but have nothing to do with your motor.
