To VVT, or not to VVT

So I'm digging all the way into this 06 2.3L motor to replace the cylinder head. How can I tell if it has variable valve timing or not? It makes a difference regarding which head to order.

Thanks!

Thank you very much! With this information I was able to order a new cylinder head before I get the cracked one out. Much appreciated. After I get it on the road, I will go for the recall.

Thanks again,

Tim
