Default vtec honda prelude?

i was looking at buying a Honda prelude and after doing some research i concluded that i want a v-tec version. i'm looking at the 92-96 range. I know for 92 that they have 3 different model engines the s the si and the vtec version. But after 92 i cant figure out if the same 3 engines are avail be. I heard after 92 that vtec was made standard. Is this by any means true?thanksAlright cool, so the si has four wheel steering.

I believe that it was standard for the prelude to have a vtec. i owned a 97 prelude and the only other model was type SH. they all had the vtech engine.

I think most, if not all, Hondas have the Vtech engines. The differences are usually the DOHC or SOHC version. So I am thinking it does have a Vtec.

Not all Si models come with four wheel steering standard. four wheel steering on a Prelude is really rare good luck finding one of those. The type S model has the F22a1 SOHC, the SI H23a1 is DOHC non-vtec, and the vtec model of course comes with a H22a1 DOHC Vtec. I have 1993 Prelude I bought with the F22a1 engine. I did a engine swap on mine now i have the H22a JDM now.
