    My question is what are the ups and downs of a 1.5 vtec, compared to a plain 1.5. Whichever one i get, it will be going into a 94 civic hatchback. Thanks a bunch for all the help.

    They both suck

    Get a REAL motor- gsr, b16a, ls, type r, h22

    To answer your question though- the d15b7 is a POS and it has 102 hp. The jdm spec d15b is also a POS, but has a little more power at 130 hp.

    ahahahahahah....

    don't give him that much grief, some people are on a budget when doing swaps. but doesn't the hatch already come with a d15 non v-tec, and if its a si then you get the single overhead cam v-tec. so if ur gonna choose between the 2 go v-tec, at least its some what of an upgrade :rolleyes:

    the si had the d16z6, a SOHC 1.6 liter vtec engine that basicly is a peice of shit, (I have a POS under my hood.) Dont do that swap, it is a waste of money and you will not be satisfide (sp?) Save up your money. If your on a budget get the B18B, lots of trq and not that expensive.

    dude, if ur on a budget, dont get a 1.5l engine its a waist of money. Get a Sohc Vtec. or if u want a better engine go with a b18b. b18b will b about 1800 total. very inexpensive as swaps go, and will cost around the same as the lame 1.5L

    im not saving up to get a swap, and if i was i would get a b-16 sir II. the reason i was asking is because i have my pick of a hb with a 1.5 v-tec, or a hb with jus a plain 1.5.

    Youre getting a car from japan? Thats the only place where the vtec 1.5 came in a car stock. And if the d15b is already been swapped in the car, dont buy that one cause the person who owned it is retarded.

    if your looking to buy one, the VX or the 1.5 Vtec is the best hatch to buy

    a. because they are the lightest of all the hatches
    b. they are pre-wired for VTEC (makes swaps much easier)
    c. they already have a tach

    if you are stuck between buying a vx and a non vx hatch for the same price, for sure go with the VX. The only other one that is great for swaps is the SI because it has VTEC and rear disc brakes, but they are heavier than anyother hatch
