Default No vtec logo on 2011 tsx?

I got a 2011 acura tsx and usually if a car had vtec, it would say vtec on the motor. My tsx doesnt say anything. Do i have vtec? Thanks

The V6 model should have a version of SOHC VTEC, engine code J35Z6. This means that VTEC mechanisms are only applied to the intake side because of the single cam.

The inline-4 model, engine code K24Z3 does not have the same "performance" VTEC (3-lobe design) as in the earlier models of the TSX, engine code K24A2. On the newer motor, the exhaust side has a single lobe camshaft and single exhaust port on the head but VTEC on the intake side remains the usual 3-lobe design. All K-series have the VTC function, hence the "i" in iVTEC.

So to answer your have VTEC.

It don't matter if you have vtec or not, you won't be using too much of it to notice it's significance anyways.
