    Some years of the d16z6 do not have a vtec emblem on the valve cover. For instance my motor does not have the Vtec stamped on it. It just says Honda. You can check it out in my profile if you want.

    The a6 and the z6 heads have spark plugs on different sides of the valve cover. Like slammed said find a z6 valve cover with out vtec on it. Remember anyone who knows a little about Hondas will be able to pick out the vtec head so its not really even worth trying to hide it.

    Supposedly, find a 93 Del Sol Si, it's supposed to have a D16Z6 with no vtec cover, but I keep telling these retards that I have a D16Z6, and my 93 Del Sol Si clearly says VTEC.

    most people in my area wouldnt know what the vtec solenoid is anyway. they would be looking at the valve cover.

    My vtec head on my mini me doesnt say vtec on it. I believe it is from a 94 del sol si. Not totally sure tho, but they are rite, most people will be able to tell the dif sense the plugs are on the front instead of the back, the valve cover is taller and boxyer (not sure if thats a word) and there is a vtec sylenoid behind the distributer, lol
