Default 1998 HONDA CIVIC EX: V-Tech? or NO V-Tech?

I HAVE A 1998 AUTOMATIC HONDA CIVIC EX 2 DOOR COUPE. I want to know if it has V-Tech. No, It is NOT labeled on the bloody ENGINE!Who cares about a label. If you can answer this question without saying "Oh durr hurrr if the engine doesn't have a V-Tech label, its not v-tech", then you are GREAT! I guess "Aspirins" don't have Aspirin if its not labeled aspirin right? NO. Well, if you don't answer this, I will definitely need an ASPIRIN.I hear that SOME of the 1998's have v-tech, but don't have a labels on the engines.What I see: I see an Intake Manifold with a bar attached to it. A foot long, shiny bar. I also see that there are air flow ducts going from the AIR filter to this intake manifold. There is a peace of plastic that sais "PPK CB2" on it. The intake manifold, as far as I can see, sais "2K" on it.Another QUESTION: Superchargers & Turbos.Does the supercharger/turbo attach to the intake manifold? Or does it REPLACE the intake manifold? I'm stumped there.I timed my car from 0-60 and I got it timed at 13 seconds flat. Its an automatic transmission. Good? Bad? TELL MEH!!

Yes, your car has VTEC (no hyphen or H in the name). The '96-'00 Civic EX's came with the D16Y8, which is a VTEC engine.Superchargers replace the intake manifold. A turbocharger is attached to a turbo manifold, which replaces the exhaust manifold (or header).The 0-60 doesn't sound too bad. The manual transmission version does it in around 8.6 seconds. The automatic transmission will certainly slow it down from that.

Where did you learn grammar? Obviously, you need to take the course again.

How are you going to tell people that a turbo doesn't put stress on a motor? Turbos raise compression and put a tremendous amount of strain on a motor. That is why it is imperative to get a good tune.

You need to stop giving advice until you know what you are talking about.

Vtec is how you spell it. Not v-tech. V-tech makes phones.

And if you knew anything about the motor in the OP's car, you would know that it is a D16Y8, so it would be a 1.6 liter.
