I'm familiar with what VTEC is, but I wasn't aware that it's also an inside joke to cover up driver mistakes.

I might just keep that in my back pocket for possible future use.

Things certainly have evolved. We used off set woodruff keys on the crank sprocket, to change the cam timing on the older BMW EP cars. It was was not legal to change your cam timing at that period. Is now.
