Fd1 - 2008, Vtec (Need Some Help)

Need some help guys..

Am looking at getting down a FD1-1800CC (2008) from Japan. The car i selected does not have the wording 'VTEC' on the tappet cover as in the case of most 1600 CC engines i have seen...

Is this because FD1 domestic models do not have the VTEC engraving on the tappet cover, or is it that some cars come without VTEC ?

Can anyone tell me how to identify VTEC by the engine components...

to my knowledge, all 8th generation gasoline engined 1.8L civics came with vtec engines. as for your question, you'd find info about how to spot the vtec in a honda engine discussed in more than a couple of topics related to virs so if you search the forum on that basis then you might be able to land some information on the same.

The R18 engine has i-Vtec and it isn't stated on the tapped cover i guess :)

R18A1 is a SOHC i-VTEC engine (JDM FD1) and does not have any i-VTEC decals on valve cover. Guess Honda didn't bother since it`s designed for fuel economy with i-VTEC working on lower revs. :)

You may also check the engine number, if its` in the format R18A1xxxxxxx, it`s got i-VTEC, rest assured. :)

P.S. The rusted part on the second pic looks like a VTEC solenoid for me. Somebody please correct me if im wrong.
