Is the 3.0 V6 DOHC? [View News Item]    (Score: 1, Normal) 05-13-2004 09:31

Is the 3.0 V6 a J series V6, or is something different? I ask because I was under the assumption that you had to have DOHC to use the i-VTEC system. What kind of power does this engine put out?

As i've complained before, I really wish honda wouldn't have used the confusing "i-VTEC" designation for this motor. In this case, the "i-VTEC" only denotes the presence of VCM.

I can only guess, but SOHC layout probably offers a more compact and lighter package, without giving up anything in terms of output. There aren't many 3.0 liter V6 engines (SOHC or DOHC) that deliver 240 to 270 HP anyway. Honda J30A (thats the code) does.

Elysion 3.0-liter V6 (J30A) delivers 247 HP/228 lb.-ft and has "i-VTEC", but i-VTEC in this case is just for the "VCM" (Variable Cylinder Management... to shut down three of six cylinders when they are not needed). It is still SOHC.
