Default Does Honda make a factory B20 w/ VTEC?

I've been looking on wiki all morning and I haven't found shit, so I'm guessing they don't.

No they dont. The B20 is a strong motor but it has no Vtec. If you want it to be stronger, then do a B20 Vtec conversion. But its very costly & this has to be done by professionals or the car will not run right.

Like the first person said no. Those engines were not meant to be a high rev engine. They were designed with low end power in torque in mind. A stock jdm b20b redlines at about 6700, where as a b16a2 revs to 8250. Now like mentioned before you can Frankenstein the engine with a vtec head. However, I'm one of those people who is not a fan of that type of engine. I've seen one to many come apart first hand. Still, there are lots and lots of people who love b20/vtec and ls/vtec engines who swear they are the greatest thing out there. Though most of them are on their second or so vtec franken engine.
