Do you mean CVS? Ignore that for now. The P1354 is VVVi, Variable Valve timing, controlled by oil pressure. I can gather some information but have to go for about an hour. Please check back, unless somebody just goes on with this.

Or lift. It's called lift but it'd more a push. jeez, this looks so pretty it's a shame to get oil all over it. It's really not often used, only near red-line and WOT...and even though its a DOHC and not a push-rod engine it still uses a rocker arm Click for full screen
