Pretty much says what i stated above, not to quote myself but...... quote" valvetronic takes the place of the throttle body in allowing a metered amount of air to enter the engine. When we push on the accelerator pedal in our cars it actually controls the valvetrain and not the TB butterfly."

i searched on the net and here and can't seem to find anything related to my question.
