Default Vtec or Vvti which one is better?

I HAVE SEEN WITH MY OWN EYES THAT THE XRS VVTI FROM TOYOTA KICK OUT SI VTEC IN 1/4 MILE/// HOWEVER HONDA CLAIMS THA IN A LONG RACE VTEC WILL CATCH TOYOTA .. BUT TOYOTA CLAIMS THAT IS GONNA BE TO LATE CAUSE VVTI STILL BEING VVTI IT DOES NOT MATTER IN WHAT SHIFT THE CAR IS RUNNING.. BUT MY SENSE TELLS ME THAT VTEC HAS MORE HORSE POWER, BUT WHAT DO I NEED SO MUCH HP IS VVTI HAS ALREADY LEFT ME BEHIND.?? HP WILL NOT HELP ME TO WIN MY RACE!! WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Its not about your hp its really about the tourque. As far as vtec and vvti they are the same thing its just toyota cant use the word vtec because its used by honda. vvti is yotas way of saying VTEC. toyota vehicles usually have a little more torque than a civic so the civic will have to play the game of catch-up in a race.

im a huge drag racing enthusiast and own a 91 civic hatchback with a b20 engine and b16 vyec head...i disabled the vtec mechanism because when its balls to the wall full power...whats the need of it? youre not trying to conserve gas or anything like that, and it actually will take precious time off of your e/t. the toyotas system by the way is far less superior compared to hondas. it all depends on whats racing and what the mods are on each car before i can got telling you whos gonna win.
