    Definitely a VTEC engine unless unless it's a Y7 head. If you can go take a look it it; just look for the stamp on the block. I recall some people in Singapore having D16B's so it may be legit.

    It might be a D15B. There was a single cam 1.5 VTEC motor in Japan, so that's a possibility. Just look at the stamp on the block if you go look at it.

    Also, why did you post this in two forums? That was unnecessary.

    JDM D15B SOHC VTEC 1.5 Liter

    Came in the Civic VTi which was a European version I believe. Could me Japanese version too but I definately heard about a European VTi with this engine in it. It's the equivilant of a Cx or Vx block with a Vtec head.

    Here ya go:

    theres no such thing as a d16b as far as i know

    only thing i can think of is that he used an a6/z6 block and slapped a d15b head on it, and dubbed it a d16b

    The D15B is pretty much equivalent to the D16Z6; and Japan has them too(I have one of them :) )

    From list I found on Oneshift.com(not sure what market):
    and thread on D-series about D16B2: D16B2... Yes, I saw it. And, oh yes, you will too. - D-series.org

    You are most likely thinking of the B16B not D16B easy mistake but it is hard to tell what is came out of since that motor was in most from DOHC vtec to SOHC to the 3 stage vtec.
