Default Is there such a thing as a 97 integra with a non vtec engine?

im in the process of buying a newer car and i was thinking about a 97 integra 5 speed. Keep in mind I know more about nissan than anything but my question is this. On the valve cover gasket it doesnt say its a vtec. But all the 5speed 97 integras i keep finding are called gsr's and their vtecs. Is there such a thing as a 97 integra 5speed non vtec? Can someone shed light on this for me id be greatlt appreciative ?

yes there are non-vtec integra'sm the gsr's are the only vtec and the type-r's, it depends on the model of the car like the RS and LS and GS are non-vtec motor but the ls you can convert into an Ls/Vtec by changing heads

The RS, LS, and GS are all non VTEC integras. The non VTEC motor makes more torque than the VTEC motor due to the bottom end. If you did make it an LS/VTEC it would beat a GS-R due to its higher amount of torque from the LS block.

yes there is non-vtec engines on ls, gs, rs and special edition. I you are only in the process of buying an integra dont waste your money on a non-vtec get a gsr or type-r. An ls block with a b16 head can give you plenty of headaches unreliable to say the least.

Acura Integras:VTEC Motors: GSR 170hp , Type R 195 hpNon VTEC: LS 140hp, GS 140hp, SE 140hpThe best non vtec integra is the LS becasue even though it has only 140HP it has more torque over the GSR, GS, and SE.
