Variable Valve Timing

The function of the camshaft is to operate the valves at the right time and in the right order to control the charge cycle. Variable valve timing adjusts the opening times of the valves to suit all operating conditions. This ensures ideal charge cycles within a wide range of engine speeds and loads. Fuel consumption and emissions are reduced, torque and smoothness are increased.
