There are only certain valve covers that will go on a VTEC motor. Take a picture of it, we will be able to tell immediately.
The VTEC portion is the secondary cam lobes on the cam shafts. All of the internals of a VTEC head are different from a non-VTEC head. You cant simply "swap internals" in the head to get VTEC. You have to swap the entire cylinder head.
