yes, it has I-VTEC, and has bars beside the speedometer that are green but with throttle pressure transition to blue. There is no light that specifically says which cam is engaged, but by watching the bars and fuel mileage gauge you can clearly see it. After driving it for this long i can feel it also.

The 1.8 (r18) civics have an "ECON" mode that changes the shift points and throttle rate, so it makes a big difference. it's like a built in fuel coach.

It took me a while to be able to feel the engine switch on/off the eco-cam lobes, but after a while I got it. That helped because my LED indicator quit working near the end of my ownership of the car.

With the custom intake i built you can hear the cam change. when it kicks off of fuel cam it gets a nice growl.
