Default Vtc

I am trading someone a P28 ECU for a ractive catback exhaust, and a VTC VTEC Controller. I am going to put my P08 back into my car. I have a z6 mini me setup. My question is: Will the VTC work with my P08 ECU and control my VTEC?

No, your car doesn't have VTC. It controls the cam timing. the only Hondas that have this are the K-series.

So, in other words, the VTC isn't a stand-alone VTEC Controller like the VAFC?

Nope. VTC=Valve Timing Control...VAFC=VTEC Air Fuel Controller.

VTC is usually built onto the intake cam gear(it's possible to put one on the exhaust gear too, but usually not as much benefit of doing that.). The only Honda ECUs that can even control VTC are the K-series ECU(im not sure about the numbers).

Fixed.

VTC is pretty much what K2e2vin said: It can change cam timing +/- 50 total degrees (25 either way) to optimize efficiency/horsepower/torque.

It is only on the K20's/K24's. It is not a stand-alone thing-a-ma-jig, nor is it something you can tune; the ECU controls it completely.

heyyy... jprmotor! I got my d15b from them... Jimmy is the best guy to deal with over there...

the controller looks like it's for normal vtec OBD1. VTC is probably just the name of the company... but it's better to read the instructions a little more carefully to be sure.

there are no directions on there, and there is very little as far as description, and I can't find ANYTHING on this controller online.

like i said, looking at the plugs on that thing, it looks alot like OBD1. the k-series are not obd1, so it's probably a normal VTEC controller

makku is right; it is totally just a regular VTEC controller.

They probably just shortened it because it says it supports Mivec also; and they listed it as MVC. For those that don't know, Mivec is pretty much works like VTEC except different hardware.
