Not prelude related, but cool honda tech

I was browsing JDM engine depot, when I came across something that caught my eye...

JDM Engine Depot


You may say...why does a civic motor catch your eye Marshall.... and here is my answer... what caught my eye was the "3 stage VTEC"

A google search yielded this

3-stage VTEC - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



This is pretty cool technology in my book, does anyone know why they didn't use this on other engines?

The short answer is that they (they being Japanese engineers with lab coats and lots of pens in their top pockets) decided that it wasn't required.

That D-series could have 5 stage VTAKKK it would still be a D-series.

Interesting find though, I never knew there was such a thing.
