Re: Variable valve timing on colorados?

The Colorado has variable timing on the exhaust valve but not the intake valves.

Current: 2008 Silverado Z71 4wd, Reg cab, Victory red, 5.3L, Auto, 2" leveling spacers, shaved emblems
Former: 2007 Colorado Z85 2wd, Ext cab, Silver Birch, 2.9L, 5 spd, 2" susp lift, 31" tires

Re: Variable valve timing on colorados?

I believe the word KNOW is left out in the sentence.


How does this Varible exhaust valve timing work. I'm interrested in how the electroinc side works, i know that the solenoid is a control valve and a hydraulic actuator.

What i want to know is, if i can control the pulses to the solenoid, would i get better Rpms or a diffrent torque band.

When is the VVT activated?

And is the VVT the reason for the Dohc engine to run so hot, exhaust temp.

Google is your friend for your questions.

And DOHC engines running hot? I'd like to know what your definition of hot is.
