will a v-tec valve cover work on a non v-tec head? And would a d16 valve cover work on a d15?
no a vtec valve cover wont fit on a nonvtec head..vtec spark plugs are in the front upper part of the head.where non vtec are in the rear upper..
as for 1.6 and 1.5 if its non vtec then im pretty sure they will fit
I'm not sure if you read what I put in my post but it doesn't say vtech, it says vtec! And I was just curious, I want a "wrinkle" red valve cover for my y7 but vtec valve covers are easier to find than non in this style. Thanks for the info guys

awesome this is what i was looking for! one more question do i need to prime the valve cover before painting?
D16Y7 non-VTEC spark plugs are in the front just like a D16Y8 VTEC
so are you saying a y8 cover will fit a y7 head in this case?
yes, they are the same - the Y8 doesn't say VTEC, if you were looking for that
no i would rather it not since the motors not i just like the look. like the one in the link kinda

the Y7 and Y8 covers do say HONDA on them
yea that was just what I found in a quick search.
i didnt prime mine on my prelude and it turned out fine so i dont think you would need to just prep it real good
I didn't prime coat mine just prepped it good.
that looks great did you tape off the letters or just scrape them?
as long as its from a 96-00 d series non vtec the cover will work
