it's a little off, becuase VTEC does not allow for "multiple camshafts" (i.e. four cylinder SOHC).... I think what they meant was allowing for "multiple lobes per valve" on the camshaft.

I found a good one a few years ago i wish i could find it :( but it had some good info about how vtec works and how it was developed and whatnot

If anyone has a downloadable copy of High Performance Honda Builder's Handbook by Joe Pettitt, appendix D is all about how Vtec works.
If I find a scanner to use I can scan the pages and upload them also.

is super v-tec easy to hook up and does it ruin your engines as fast as turbo and misfiring system?

okay i was chilling with nus at midway a couple of days ago at midway and there was this dude came and talk to him and was talking about super v-tec. it supposedly be some kinda straight hook up with the v-tec selonoid without anything in-between and was wondering if i can get more information about this "super vtec" and this at advantage and disadvantage, but being "super vtec" i suppose that there is no disadvantage.
they guys is on this forum. he drives a White ford explorer and he used to drive a civic until something with his clutch bearing went out right after this installation

Based on your description, it sounds like just wiring the solenoid on full time.
That will cause some issues (there's a reason why it's advised not to kick it on below 2k), but could be done very easily.
Why you'd want to, I'm unsure.

from what i heard it kicks hard and just wanna see if this would produce more hp/speed

yo i set my vtec in kpro to 3500 because its early vtec

The only reason you would want early vtec would be for good gas milage lol, the reason it is set around 5-5600 is because that is usually where your torque curve is ending and you hourse power will begin fyi
