I was just told that my motor is non-vtec. My friend said he didn't see a solonoid under the distributer cap. Where exactly is it located? I would really like to know. My D16Y8 is getting the ax anyhow...but the dealer sold it to me telling me it was a VTEC...so I would like to get some false-advertising money (sue their butts). Also....how would I not have VTEC when I hear it, and I have smoked 92-95 EX's and 93-00 Teg GS/LS/RS's?

why is he yelling? vtec cams have two small lobes and one large central lobe......... so, you should have 12 lobes in four sets of three

Yeah....what do ya know...my friend bullshitted me. All D16Y8 motors came VTEC without exception. I believed him in the first place because he builds motors in his sleep, and has about 6 self swapped hondas, and a motorswapping business!

This guy lives and breaths freaken honda...hes awesome though. He is giving me a job at his shop this summer and teaching me everything about B series, H series, F series, J series, transmissions, and swapping. He also right now has done all my suspention work. He has like 2 CRX's, a Turbo II (rx7), and AE86 (Panda), 2x 2nd gen Integras, and a Celica ST (about to be turned into a All-Track). I'd say thats a cool list of cars. Hit me up if you need a good price on parts...
