it's a cylinder shapedsolenoid next to the head. You can't really HEAR VTEC on a SOHC civic...you can however run a VTEC light so you'll know when it's activated.

I will have to take your word for it because my car had i/h/e done when I bought it. Easily believable though.

i have a SOHC with an intake. i can hear when vtec crossesover. probably because i know when it engages, but i can still hear it.
