    Ok sorry if this is the wrong thread anyhow my son got a 91 Civic with not sure now I am a Tug Capt and I am out on the boat so all I have is a pic he sent me and a crappy one at that. :rolleyes:
    I figured maybe some of you Honda experts out there could see the crappy pic and tell me weather this is a Carb or FI. I am not sure after reading about guy saying that the DPFI looks like a carb so figured I would get you guys to look at the pic and see if you can tell. The reason I am also asking is it is smoking black on accel so figured maybe rings or valve seals no problem but figured SWAP but have to figure out what it is and how much work I am looking at converting stuff.

    Sorry for the long rant here is the pic

    it is DPFI (Dual Point Fuel Injection with 2 fuel injectors on the front of the throttle body) - MPFI is Multi Point Fuel Injection which has 4 injectors with 1 injector feeding directly into each cylinder - could be either a D15B1 or D15B2 - D15B1 came in the STD model with 4-speed transmission - D15B2 came in the DX model

    i just did one on my 91 and i did a d15b2, one of those 35k mile motors. got the motor for $375 everything went in no problems. its the easiest thing you can do unless your lookin for hp then theres a ton of options for you
