find the engine code on your car and we should tell if you car has vtec or not. the engine code is located on your engine block. it should be on the lower left side of the engine. here is an example..


make sure you wipe that area clean. after you find the code..report back to us.

or, just look on the back of the head, on the distributor/passenger side.. there will be a little cylinder sticking out if there is, its the vtec solenoid

You probably wont feel it even if it is VTEC. VTEC doesnt give the same sudden "kick" like a turbo, like most people make it seem.

That is not true what is the matter with you. The Del Sol si's have D16z6 VTEC motors and they do not say it on the valve cover neither do the 96+ EX's they are VTEC also. If you have a 92 civic HB Si you have a D16z6 motor just like the EX's and yes it is VTEC and you will notice that your car will redline at 7200 rpms.

Well here's the answer the number on the engine is .....D16z6 , which makes it a VTEC..but the question is I don't really feel anything much is it becaue its a SOHC or because it might not be working..

you're not gonna feel that much, it's more a sound your might hear.

92 and 93 dont say vtec on it, this is true for civic and del sols. If it has sparkplugs in front its a vtec, if they are in the back its not.

You won't even hear it on the SOHC unless you have done some mods like Intake/ Headers/ Exhaust then you can hear it.
