Smile VTEC Solenoid Location

Could somebody please tell me where the VTEC solenoid is located on my 1998 Civic Si with a D16Y8 block? I'm gonna be doing my own grounding mod soon and have been reading that the VTEC solenoid is a good ground point.

Thanks a lot guys!

i upgraded my grounds. first it wasn't waste of money, since my friend enough of his 4gwg wires and i know someone that works at best buy and i bought some 4 gauge plugs and i just made 3 grounds to replace my existing. it feels better, imo. and plus, my old ones were like rotting to ****....and the older ones were only 8 guage i believe.
