Most likely not because The vtech would be stamped into the top of the engine plate in nice large letters. But i only see some hand writing in the corner.

Actually not all vtec engines have "vtec" stamped on the valve cover. The only way to know is if it has a vtec solenoid. This motor does NOT. No solenoid= No Vtec.Good luck!

I have to agree with Mirella. The VTEC stamp is only used on the dual overhead cam B-Series engine in these cars. The single overhead cam VTEC engine is still a D-Series even if it has VTEC due to it being a single cam. This car has neither of those. It is the base model Del Sol. It has a 1.5 liter SOHC 16 valve (D15) engine. Good engine, but no VTEC.

That is a D15B2 Non Vtec you can tell because in this pic the is no Vtec solenoid also the SOHC Engines with the dipstick tube in the front are 88-95 OBD1 Engines If it was Vtec engine The Spark Plugs would be towards the front. Like The D16z6 http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a1...3/S2010217.jpg You can tell by the spark plug in the front only with the OBD1 And OBD0 Engines because 96-00 There all in the front with both vtec and non-vtec.
