The Mark 4 VR6 (12V and 24V) has it, the 1.8T has it, the 30V V6 (2.8 and 3.0) has it....

Oh yeah..the Audi 4.2 V8 (also in the Touareg and Phaeton), the W8, W12, 2.7 Bi-Turbo..

Does VW have a VVT system in any of it's cars?<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Is this the VW equivalent to VTECH? I'm not really sure what VVT stands for... variable valve timing?

Ok fairly big difference between Variable Valve Timing and VTEC, mainly because VTEC has a second lobe on the camshaft for top end power, where as, from looking at 1.8T camshafts, there isn't a second lobe. VVT on our cars can either advance or retard when the camshaft hits the valve (I think) and can induce more or less crossover flow during the intake phase.

Not that I am saying that our VVT is bad or anything, it certainly is a great thing to have, but VTEC is still an advantage...

Wow that's crazy. It's on a lot of their models they just don't brag about like every other manufacturer. What is it called?

VVT on the VW motor.. at least the 20v, changes the timing on the intake cam.
