Default ULEV VTEC?

I was looking at motors earlier and I found the F23A4 out of a 98 accord. It's a SOHC "ULEV VTEC" engine.

My question is, what is the difference between this and a regular VTEC or an iVTEC?

i'm familiar with VTEC AND i-VTEC, someone tell me about ULEV VTEC.

All that ULEV means is that Honda designed the motor to comply with standards that allow Honda to label the vehicle as ULEV.

It's a marketing tool allowed manufacturers, to show that they have proved that they are concerned with emissions and the environment.

I see a lot of 6th gen accords with ULEV on them and they were never in CA. I believe that the V6 accord is ULEV as w ell.
