On your block, right next to your transmission is a number that starts with a D. That's the name of that engine. Google or Wikipedia it to find out more info on it.

The D16Y8 is a Vtec motor. Either he has this motor and has no idea about it, or his motor has been swapped.

Yes, but greddy_civic hasn't cleared up what engine he has. He "knows its not a VTEC", which means that he either a.) had his engine replaced, or b.)didn't know his car had VTEC.
