The Reason People Go For A Honda Civic

By Blake Jacobs

“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 grew to become the movie’s battle cry and has then since then left a lasting impression to audiences around the world. For all fans though, this became a secret code of ethics very similar to how Sex and the City stamped its one of a kind chutzpah to women’s self-image but enough of Carrie and her best friends’ bags, shoes, men and lifestyle. Despite the fact that the first installment was filmed in its entirety in the US, majority of the automobiles used were Honda. It is very apparent that these Japanese cars also developed a good impression with a considerable amount of the speed dare devils here in the country.

Honda was created in 1948 by Soichiro Honda. Japan and its citizens desired a very reliable and cost efficient means of transportation. This need was a product of the country’s defeat in World War 2 which started Honda’s dynasty. Mainly, the reason why Honda became so popular in the United States is caused by its reliability, better-than-average fuel efficiency, quality and more than anything else its very inexpensive cost.

Vtec (Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control) is undoubtedly the trademark of Honda. This breakthrough by Honda made it possible for small engines to have outputs equivalent or greater than that of a much larger engine. The principle of Vtec is mainly using hydraulically actuated pin that is pushed horizontally to connect with the rocker arms. The valve springs are utilized to return the pin from its original position. Ikuo Kajitani is among the individuals that were hired by Honda in the expansion of this project. He talked about Vtec as making your engine breathe more freely as it goes through more work, very similar to the way the human lungs function. Vtec initially came out on the 1989 Integra version of Honda which took the B16A engine code. Maintaining a 1595cc inline-4 16valve DOHC (Dual Overhead Cam) engine with VTEC produces 160ps-one thing that is incredibly exceptional for its size and displacement. Truly this revolutionized the automotive industry during that time.

Not long after the manufacturing of the DOHC Vtec engine, Honda made a smaller brother for the big fellow. The new Vtec applies a SOHC (Single Overhead Cam) engine which was thought of by authorities as an undesirable offshoot of the DOHC Vtec. Interestingly, the SOHC Vtec has its own advantage alongside its bigger brother with regards to its weight and size. The SOHC Vtec also offers the power to create the entire potential of Vtec. The SOHC vtec engines which was launched on the year 1992-1995 and was marketed by Civic/Civic Ferio Vti models was run by a 1493cc D15B engine having an awesome output of 130ps which was most commonly seen to 1600 engines and some other dual overhead cam engines tuned minimally.

As we are all aware Honda’s worldwide recognition rose rather quickly and its customers were generally from the state of California. Therefore, an increase on the need for car services and maintenance shops arise. Los Angeles Auto Repair caters to your Honda Civics’ need to keep it in tip top shape.

With man’s genius almost nothing is impossible. Honda showed clearly that the thought of having both power and fuel economy is not simply wishful thinking but a fact just waiting to be discovered. The breakthrough discovery of Vtec started out new opportunities of comparable technology which is currently employed by other auto manufacturers. Undeniably, Honda’s Vtec was the turning point in car technology, an exhibit of true ingenuity, skill, as well as innovation. It is no car-wonder in that case that it has positioned itself in a solid and prominent stature even in the country and has even reached the fancy of Hollywood and if many Honda followers were to think, Vin Diesel as well.
