    i bought a d15b motor and put it in. i am having a problem with how to wire up vtec because my car was non vtec before, so if anyone could help i would greatly appreciate it. also my car starts but when u rev it up it dies out as if it is not getting any fuel. thank you

    d15b stock in EK?????????


    why would you bother to swap in a d15b into an ek though?? when you can get a LS for about the same and be way faster with much more performance options and all around better outcome??

    i just see a d15b being a complete waste of money...

    d15b
    single overhead cam
    less then 130 hp
    1.6l
    3 stage vtec
    imported from JDM

    b18b
    146 hp
    double overhead cams
    low compression perfect for turbo
    optional ls/vtec swap
    built strong
    large displacement
    LOTS of availability
    LOTS of performance options
    can get them locally
    more.....

    just dont see the reason why. he wouldnt even have to bother wiring up vtec unless he did the ls/vtec swap later.


    Good luck with your swap though. there are alot of forums out there with write ups about SOHC vtec wire ups.

    what are you trying to say that im wrong and your right???

    are you saying a d15b is better then a b18b??

    in that case, i, and others for that matter, would probably end up saying your wrong

    first off. i was making a joke out of it, was trying to make the point of putting it in a EG as a replacement is all its good for. second off, i hit enter by accident when i was trying to clear out the post and retype up what was entered in RIGHT as you replied.

    you took it way to serious, i didnt even know it posted cause when i hit enter instead of backspace i got a clear text box. hence why i didnt know it posted
