it doesn't look like a Y8 head...

maybe a Z6?

i don't think it is.

the VTEC solenoid on a d-series is behind the head (facing the firewall) more towards the left hand side if standing infront of the car. from the looks of it, there are two prongs sticking out of the head where it should be, i dont know if the solenoid mounts to that, someone more knowledgable would need to fill you in on this.

Doesn't look like there's any spot for the VTEC solenoid in this pic.

Looks like a vtec head to me.

I believe the spark plugs are on the back of the valve cover for non-vtec. May just be missing the solenoid.

Probably out of an EX. Of course I could be mistaken.

looks like a vtec head to me as well plugs in front. if they were in the back of the motor it would be a non-vtec motor

I've seen them four ways from 92-95.

1. black coated w/VTEC and HONDA (symbol and wording)
2. black coated paint w/HONDA (symbol and wording) only
3. no paint w/VTEC and HONDA (symbol and wording)
4. no paint w/HONDA only

looking at the spark plug holes:

95 head, it is a VTEC head.

96+ head, it could be anything
