no i was told it was a VTEC head. I looked at a pic of my Y8 head and this one and there are parts not installed on this one, so that its why it looks like an 8 valve

I'm pretty sure that's not a y8 head. Mine says v-tec on it. Although mine is the NZ variation, so it's actually a y6 according to the coding. Still a y8 though.

You can't tell without seeing the stamp on it or the back of the head. Y7 and Y8 heads are basically the same casting. Its probably a Y7
if you enlarge the pic you can make out the 3rd lobe on the cam, if i am not mistaken

ask them to take a picture of the stamp. just tell them your weary of buying a non vtec head, and yes they say it is. but some people dont know what they actually have

Cam towers and rockers are all there. Looks like it has a center lobe, probebly a y8.

no LMA's (lost motion assembly) so I'll bet it is a Y7 head.

The holder is there, but is empty.

Doubt like this is enough reason to pass, no matter the price!

yeah, I was thinking the same thing, or see if it's there, if I was buying a vtec head it better have the solenoid with it, or you would have to buy one of those also...

"definitly a y8 head no doubt but yeah lma seems to be missing... ask if they come with the head cause they worth 33$ each"

i agree. it looks to be a y8 head(i'm 98% sure). just missing the lma's and the vtec solenoid. i believe if it were there you would just be able to see the top of it from that angle. bid quick though...or it won't be worth it
