    Its a dx, it is not wired for vtec. What does the year have to do with that, non vtec cars arn't wired for vtec. :confused:

    no, your dx harness won't have the plug. You will have to use either the entire ex engine harness, or wire up the plug into your stock harness. When you say a 92 is already wired for vtec, it means that the in-car harness (runs from shock tower connectors to ecu) has the vtec wires already.
