It should say "VTEC" on the plastic cover that's on top of the Valve cover, see below. As far as the stripped bolt; vise grips and PB Blaster...



What do you want a D17 for?

If it is a d17a2 then it is vtec, just look on the block and check to see what the engine code says that is stamped on the block just to the left of the exhaust manifold.
