    My friend just bought a 93 civic ex (Non-vtec). What does he need to do to make his car a vtec? Is this simple to do? Thanks

    or what you can do is get a vtec head and install that instead of getting a whole engine

    Yeah if its got the stock engine (d16z6) it has vtec(y0)

    My brothers ex doesn't say "vtec" on it which confused me at first then I read the block and it said z6 and i was all liek :huh:

    But since Im L33T I noticed the vtec solenoid
