Toyota VVTLi – Variable Valve Timing and Lift

The new Celica 190 (GTS in the USA) now features the amazing VVTL-i engine developed by Toyota and Yamaha. Based on the standard 1.8 VVT-i, the VVTL-i has both Variable Valve Timing and Variable Valve Lift. The latter is achieved by an extra cam lobe that is brought into play by the engine electronics via a hydraulic actuator.
