Umm, I'm pretty darn sure that the D16Y8 engine IS a VTEC engine. The D16Y8 doesn't say VTEC on the valve cover.

D16Y7= non vtec
D16Y8= vtec

Check on your tranny, it will say which one it is. When you open the hood, its under your engine and toward the left side,facingfront, near the starter i believe. correct me if i am wrong (I'm trying to do this from memory).

^ding ding, we have a winner.

Check out this thread or pictures of the engine and arrows to where the engine code can be found: https://www.hondacivicforum.com/m_369141/tm.htm

So yeah, the badge is on the block, to the left of the header, and a little lower, where the header meets the head.
