Single Vanos - Intake Valves are variable, Exhaust are not.

Double Vanos - Intake and Exhaust are variable.

VANOS does stand for something in German, I have seen it somewhere but my German is as good as my Greek.

VANOS is basically the same as VTEC and a lot of the other manufacturers have their own labelling of the systems...reduces emissions, increases performance over the entire range of the system.

Regards,
Preston

P.S. -> Do I have single VANOS right or is it exhaust not intake?...
