Is this an se, vtec, or both????

I tried to upload the pics but couldnt so go check it out. I thought se's came with h23 and only in silver or black and only 1995. This car has usdm foglights, se rims, and se interior, but vtec gauges, motor, and sticker. Hmmm. pretty hefty price also.

I know that for fourth gens (depends on the year though) there is the S, Se and VTEC trims.


I have absolutely no idea which one is which, sorry.

That's a vtec, with SE rims. Also SE's were only cashmere (champagne gollldddddd) or dark green very similar to that color, and yes only came with H23's from factory.

X2. Looks like the previous owner did some part swapping.

Very RARE ECU in that car. OBD2 H22 ECU without the immobilizer in it..
