“I live my life a quarter mile at a time,” says Dom portrayed muscle man Vin Diesel in the movie Fast and the Furious. It have become the movie’s battle cry and has then ever since then left a lasting impression to viewers around the world. For all enthusiasts though, this became a secret code of ethics virtually identical to how Sex and the City stamped its distinctive chutzpah to women’s self-image but enough of Carrie and her best friends’ bags, shoes, men and way of living. Going back to Fast and the Furious, even though the film was shot in the United States particularly in California and the Desert Cities, it is rather unexpected that the majority of the vehicles used were Honda instead of the all American muscle cars that have already placed its benchmark throughout racing enthusiasts around the world. Why, you may ask? Well, Honda has created its image as one of the most efficient and trustworthy vehicles out in the market.
High-class quality, high reliability, amazing fuel efficiency, and most of all inexpensive – these were Soichiro Honda’s vision when he created his company in 1948. Its earliest line of product was the motorbike which was dramatically needed by the customers of Japan as they have been crippled by World War 2. Japan’s men and women where in desperate need of a very cost efficient and well engineered mode of transportation which began the Honda’s era. Basically, the reason why Honda became very popular in the United States is because of its dependability, better-than-average fuel efficiency, top quality and most importantly its very reasonable cost.
VTEC (Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control) is associated with Honda. This is an example of Honda’s most significant invention. Vtec made way for smaller engines to have outputs similar or greater than that of bigger engines. The process is very easy but dazzling on its own. It made it possible for the engine to take in more air as it gets more workload. This was made possible by the use of a hydraulically triggered pin which is pushed to connect with the rocker arms at the same time the valve springs are utilized to position the pin back to its original position. Vtec initially came out on the 1989 Integra version of Honda which brought the B16A engine code. Having a 1595cc inline-4 16valve DOHC (Dual Overhead Cam) engine with VTEC produces 160ps-one thing that is incredibly outstanding for its size and displacement. Surely this changed the automotive industry during that time.
Not long after the development of the DOHC Vtec engine, Honda produced a small-scale brother for the big fellow. The new Vtec puts forth a SOHC (Single Overhead Cam) engine which was thought of by authorities as bad offshoot of the DOHC Vtec. Amazingly, the SOHC Vtec has its own advantage alongside its bigger brother with regards to its weight and size. The SOHC Vtec also offers the capacity to harness the full potential of Vtec. The SOHC Vtec’s public launching was from the year 1992-1995 and was housed on by the Civic/Civic Ferio. Vti models bear the 1493cc D15B engine with a fantastic output of 130ps, equal to a 1600 engine along with other dual overhead cam engines.
As we all know Honda’s global recognition rose rapidly and its customers were mainly coming from the state of California. Due to this fact, a growth on the demand for car services and maintenance shops take place. Los Angeles Auto Repair provides your Honda Civics’ need to keep it in tip top shape.
Honda developed the impossible possible, that is obtaining power with fuel economy. The invention of Vtec started the new generation of car performance while making the most of fuel efficiency. A technology just like Vtec is now also being used by almost all of the automobile producers like MIVEC from Mitsubishi, VVTL-i from Toyota, VVL from Nissan, VarioCam plus from Porsche, etc. Unquestionably, Honda’s Vtec was a breakthrough in automobile technology, an accomplishment of true ingenuity, expertise, as well as creative imagination. It is no car-wonder therefore that it has positioned itself in a formidable stature even in the United states of america and has even touched the luxury of Hollywood and if many Honda followers were to believe that, Vin Diesel as well.
