None of the 3rd generation Prelude engines came with VTEC power. Most B20A and B21A engine series had DOHC (Double overhead camshafts) and PGM-FI (Programmed Fuel Injection) and some were SOHC (Single-OHC) with a carburettor. None had VTEC though.

the 4WS option was an add-on to the standard Si package (they also got power locks, for some reason).you have the 2.0L DOHC PGM-Fi motor. VTEC was not available in the prelude until 1993.the B20 in your car is the retarded older brother of the b-series motors that came in the civics, del sols, integras, and early CR-Vs. nothing else (better) will bolt to that transmission, so any swap turns into a motor and tranny and axles and mounts and computer deal.
