    a sohc will have the small valve cover like the one in my avatar; the DOHC ZC valve cover almost looks like a b-series valve cover and has "ribs". You can go in Google Images, type in DOHC ZC and SOHC ZC and compare...It's very noticeable.

    The D15B VTEC doesnt say ZC on it. I have one and can confirm. It just says "D15B" on the block.
