Re: VTEC ???

There are non-VTEC 1.6 coupe's and SOHC VTEC coupe's, just to confuse things! lol

Apparently only the SR and VTi have VTEC, the VTi being the B series and the SR a D series :)

Not sure exactly how you'd check though!

Re: VTEC ???

check under the bonnet and look at the engine code tag, i have a feeling the d16y8 comes in 96-98 coupe's

about 125-130bhp and has vtec

Re: VTEC ???

i've been told it's a 1.6SR, it looks like a sohc but doesn't have vtec on the rocker cover,
i'll check the engine code today,
Cheers
