    1) Use the right section of the forum. Your not asking about a engine swap.
    2) If it is the stock motor (ex) then yes it is, which is engine code d16y8, look on the front of the block, or look for the vtec solenoid.

    the 5 spd definitly is, for some reason i done think the auto is.

    but yea, it doesnt actually say vtec on the valve cover but look for the solenoid on the back of the head. if its not there then someone should have some explaining to do.
