Everything else in the car is vtec? Like?

Besides the head? Yes.

Was the ECU swapped with the engine? How about the wiring harness? VTEC muffler bearings still?

I think he has a vtec ecu, from his stealing of another thread. You know the rest of the car besides the motor.

Yes they left the original vtec ecu
And the vtec intake manifold . The only thing they changed was the engine . I'm not sure if they changed the engine harness or not .

99% they just replace the motor.
Does it have a check engine light on right now? It should be for vtec and knock sensor unless they added the knock sensor to the y7 block and bypass the vtec oil pressure switch.

Either way if you want vtec you can get a y8 head and swap it in.

Just bought a d16y8 head now the problem is I have a y7 harness.. The guy who sold it to me said I need to get vtec solenoid plug and vtec oil pressure switch and connect it to the ecu . He didn't tell me exactly how to do it he said it was easy though . Any advice?

The vtec solenoid and pressure switch are on the back side of the head, right next to where the distributor connects to the cam.
So he sold you the head without the solenoid on it?

Comes with the instructions, but it just connects to the solenoid and pressure switch and then it gets connected the corresponding ecu pins.

R
Things wrong with your questions.

Y7 doesn't have a knock sensor.
Knock sensor is in the block not the head.
Y8 come with knock sensor.
Y7 have the whole threaded for the sensor but do not come with them.
