im goin to sleep so ill add some info for you...to tell if its vtec: the spark plugs will be at the front of the head and the oil cap will be at the back right, on a non vtec head the spark plugs are on the back and the oil cap is on the front left..also look for the vtec selionid on the head behind the dist.

also check the motor number: on a small flat surface on the left side (passenger side) of the block...you will see a flat surface that sticks out a little..you may need to clean it off to read the number

also what civic is it ex dx lx..ect?
