Okay.Yes, it's a VTEC. Most EX models have VTEC. But you also may not. Some VTEC's only come with DOTC. But you should know if you do.and the engine code is D16Y8. You can look on the left side of the engine when you have your hood open- right next to where the transmission and the block join up, look for a D16Y8 stamped into the block.THIS MAY HELPif it looks like this may not be a vtecIIf it looks like this$650.jpgIt is for sure because it says it haha.But I'm not too sure on that because I am an accord guy, not civic.But the engine # is correct.I

all 96-00 Civic EX's in the US have VTEC SOHC 1.6L motors (the D16Y8).
