    VTEC's never came with a buldge. It was only the 16v's that came with a bonnet with a buldge.

    Not sure for the Civic but sure that the 16v and the VTEC bonnet for the CR-X are different.

    No, the one without the buldge will not fit.


    You will need a bonnet from a Civic or CR-X 16iVT.

    VTEC bonnets raise up in the middle, where as the normal bonnets dip down.

    I thought he was reffering to a buldge as in the one on a 16V bonnet, havnt ever heard anyone classing the VTEC bonnet as having a buldge, lol but i can see where your coming from.


    If thats the case, then a normal GL/DX bonnet without the 'buldge' wouldn't fit anyway as the headlights are different sizes.

    I doubt his 91 Civic VTEC would have a 16v bonnet fitted atm :Smile: :Tongue:


    Then again, you never know :Grin:

    Lol, you'd be suprised how many people call 16V's and even GL's vtecs.

    As the commercial said.


    "If you don't see VTEC on the box, it probably won't be VTEC in the box!" :Grin:

    the buldge is there to clear the cam cover if i remember rightly, if you wanted to fit a gl bonnet then it wouldn't fit, VTEC would fit but its a whole front end conversion.

    apparently you can't fit amber corners to a gl ~(1.4 duel carb) so you need to do a VTEC conversion to be able to fit them, what im trying to say is that the bonnets must be diffrent sizes :Smile:

    Amber corners fit on the wing, all hatchback wings are the same.


    There are 2 types though,


    Screw type (88 )

    Non-screw type (90-91)

    The 2 different bonnets has been covered in this thread.
