Anything V-tech has an antenna sticking out of it. :)

The H23A is not a VTEC engine. The H22A is.

Not sure what a FIT is, but the squealing sounds like the alternator belt is loose.

Check your belts. If they are all good, you might need to tighten them a bit.

You'll know if you have VTECH when it looks like this!

Re: how do i kno if my engine is a v tech

I would swap it to a H23a vtec bluetop but I think it would be easier to get a odb-1 H22a 5 speed...

Strap 1.25 lbs c4 to the block, prime in with two non electric time fuse setups and pull smoke..stand next to it, if theres no detonation then you have VTEC
