Nope, it doesn't have VTEC. That's the C27 motor from the original Acura Legend.

As noted, your engine was first used in the Acura Legend. It is a 90 deg V6, as opposed to the more common 60 deg design used in more recent Honda engines.

The use of this engine in those Accords was a questionable marketing decision, as the cars were way too front heavy. Honda did it because the Camry was offered with a V6, and the sales guys felt the need to compete. It was also quite expensive for Honda, as they needed to modify the Accord extensively. If you compare your car to a 4 cyl Accord of the same generation, you will see that your hood and front fenders are several inches longer.

The upside is that engine is very smooth and durable.
