Default d16zc question about the head

I have a d16zc and on the head near the intake it has a spot where the vtec would be on a z6 but the head has a metal plate over it. Do all zc heads have this or is this a vtec head? I looked for the head code but could not find it. I am planning a mini me swap but I still have to buy the ecu and head gasket and timing belt.

The vtec? Do you mean the vtec selenoid? Your head has a metal plate over it?? Valve Cover? lol

I mean where the vtec would bolt on the head, there is no solenoid just a plate bolted over the opening where the vtec would be.

Yep that is where I am talking about, to the left of the intake. The motor says D16ZC right on it. I do not know why the guy put a zc in a 93 car when he could have put a z6 in it. I looked on fleabay for zc heads to see a pic. and I did not see this on those heads.

That is where the solenoid is located. Are you thinking of converting it to VTEC? For sure you're going to need that solenoid & the rockers for that, cam and computer. Maybe more...

I am going to do a mini me swap. I have another vtec head with the solenoid. This plate looks almost like a thermostat housing block off plate but it is on the back of the head. The vtec on my other motor z6 looks longer than this plate on the zc head. I am just trying to find out what this is on the head. I will try to get a pic. sometime.
