    My 2000 integra is duel cam so does that mean it is an vtec?

      Not necessarily, a vtec engine can be single cam or dual cam, the way vtec changes profiles is by building pressure in the engine not by literally changing cams. Usually it will say on the engine “VTEC”

    I have a Honda Civic with a “base” engine that must be replaced.

    If I have it changed to a V-tec engine, can it be done utilizing the existing wiring harness, and the existing ECU ??


    Should I stick with the base engine – since this is NOT a high performance car ??

    The 1.7 blocks are all the same. The difference is in the head, cams, ecu operation and the vtec actuator assembly on the side of the head. The cams have a bigger lobe sandwiched between 2 smaller lobes and its easy to tell. The computer actuated the variable timing on the vtec assembly, which causes the bigger cam lobes to start working. You will need a vtec head complete with cams, and probably swap out the ecu, maybe some splicing in of the vtec plugs if your harness doesn’t have them. Blocks are the same for non and vtec.
