VTEC Stickers Do Not A Racecar Make

It’s always kind of puzzling when you see a car that has stickers or emblems added on saying things like “turbo” or some other word that means it’s fast and fancy.  If they’re trying to impress people who know about cars, those are the exact people who will know that the sticker is a lie.


Honda’s VTEC system has become one of those, and people will say their car has VTEC even when it doesn’t, because it makes it sound impressive. The Si version of this Civic did come with the 2.0L i-VTEC motor, but this obviously wasn’t, especially because the trunk still had the “1.8L” badge. Anybody with a good knowledge of Hondas will immediately spot this as a fake.
