The engine doesn't have to say VTEC anywhere for it to be a VTEC motor.

The D16Y8 is a SOHC VTEC engine.

The 2000 Civic is a car that came equipped with the D16Y8 from the factory.

yeah...... but that is too expensive....... you can get it from crower for 250. link

Also, if you get a stage 2, you should get teh springs and retainers. those are like 250, also.

what it is vtec
Variable Timing and lift Electronic Control.....

At lower RPM's the outer two rockers operate off stock camshaft lobes. At higher RPM, the VTEC solenoid kicks in and allows oil pressure to flow to the center VTEC rocker. This rocker rides on a higher lift and duration camshaft lobe.



This is a VTEC solenoid



And this is an example of how VTEC works. the pins in the rocker arm ass. slide over when the VTEC solenoid is turned on by the ECU and follow a more aggressive cam profile.
