Is VTEC Stock Engine?

So I recently bought a 2001 prelude. Something I noticed shortly after buying it was that the engine on it isn't a DOHC VTEC. It just says Honda on it & H22A4 somewhere along the bottom left.

Are these the engines on some 5th gen preludes, or did I get jipped? Keep in mind the carfax shows 2 MINOR collisions with FUNCTIONAL damage reported to where the vehicle could be driven away from the scene. No where does it show the engine being swapped.

Re: Is VTEC Stock Engine?

Yes that is the stock engine. All USDM preludes from 97-01 came with the H22a4.

EDIT: And that valve cover would look SICK if you painted it EBP to match the car!!
