It states about VTEC on the 1.8 petrol models that there's no performance "kick". I don't really know much about how VTEC works but I do find on my 1.8 EX that around 3500 there's a definite performance boost. Not quite a kick but I find under 3500 acceleration is sluggish, but once over that, especially at 50mph or higher, it's like the car is just taking off.
I know it's probably nothing compared to a Type R, but seems there's a performance boost of some sort there ?
