    Drive By Wire?
    From what Ive sorta picked up, this technology replaces the use of a throttle body? And uses varial valve timing in the engine?
    This is a sort of toned down VTEC type thing is it?

    Which of the 1.8T engines use this?

    Give me my old fashioned cable. DBW always feels indirect and deadened.

    The engine still needs a throttle body!

    instead of having a throttle cable the ecu transmits electronic signals from the foot pedal to the motor on the throttle. this is drive by wire

    ...nothing like VTEC.
    VTEC is a system that controls the opening of the valves, to give more lift at high RPM and make more power.
