Here is my $.02 explaination:

In VTEC when the engine reaches a preset RPM level higher profile cams lobes engage and allow a longer and deeper valve movement. This allows more air/gas to be burned per revolution, hence more power. iVTEC combines the concept of VTC with VTEC. VTC allows the timing of the intake and exhaust valves to constantly be adjusted to maximize torque across a large RPM range.

Check out Autozine Technical School for a more detailed explaination.

Thanks for the info... does anyone have any dynos of a stock type S? I'd really like to see the power band, especially around 5k to redline...
They are everywhere. They have 'em in the clubrsx site, some online magazines, and all over these boards. Most people get between 163-174 whp depending on conditions, dynojet, etc.
