how do you find if you have DOHC or SOHC, when the manual and the decals inside the hood don't say anything abt it?

i thought vanos wasnt until 93??

but... SOHC and DOHC is single / dual over head cam
it doenst have to be a honda to be either type of engine.

the 1992 m50 i believe is a DOHC engine, im not 100% sure, but i think it is.

Just found out that E34 ('91) used to come with both SOHC and DOHC. But 92 came with DOHC only. You were right Spork!!

Yea 92 didn't have VANOS.
And nothing funny abt overhead cam either
