sohc engine is simpler thus less mechanical movement result better
reliability. mercedes benz love sohc...
dohc engine is more efficient n better performance since 2 cam shaft is
used to control intake or out-goin valves...

DOHC = FC high = Higher torque = More power
One of the most advance engine come with something "...TI, VVTI,VTEC or
CVT". Even if you ve DOHC but with caburator engine it is not high tech

It stands for Continuous Variable Transmission. It eliminates the
jerkiness when an automatic gearbox change gears.

Honda Accord 2.0i (RM 140,000) -> i-VTECH, DOHC, 16V (4 cylinders)
Honda Accord 2.4i (RM 140,000) -> i-VTECH, DOHC, 16V (4 cylinders)
Honda Accord 3.0i (RM 200,000) -> VTECH, SOHC, 24V (V6)
Laymen only talk of "power". Automotive engineers talk of horsepower,
torque, power-to-weight ratio, drag co-efficient etc etc. There must be a
trade-off between these factors in designing a car.

The Renault engine in Waja 1.8i also got a variable valve timer
technology. somehow the european makes don't use fanciful terms like
their japanese rivals.

CVT is gearbox type, not engine.
