It opens up a passage way for your oil to flow and push a plunger in your vtec assembly. Once the plunger is pushed down, oil pressure can "flow" into the rocker arm bars. The bars have holes that align with oil passages on the rocker arms. Within the rocker arms are dowels. As oil pressure flows in the rocker arm bars, into the rocker arms and then to the dowels, the rocker arms are "locked" together and thus you are on the high cam. You are now in almighty vtec Click the image to open in full size.
