Valvematic is a progression from the previous generation dual VVT-i power plants because as well as varying the valve timing according to throttle inputs, it can also adjust the valve lift. The end result is greater efficiency manifested in better fuel economy and more power.

Thanks....

I see a lot of iM Owners w/ side door decals "VVT-i DOHC" so I thought it was wrong....Thought I double check!

The 2zr-fae has both variable valve timing and variable valve lift. It's is dual vvt-i with the variable valve lift added to it
Because of the addition of the variable valve lift they changed the name to valvematic.

Yeah I've seen it once surprisingly. Reminded me of all the Hondas with VTEC DOHC. Not bagging on it but it's not like it's a turbocharger or something you know.
