    New comer to the forum..... old time racer coming back on the scene.

    I have a 93 Honda Del Sol that's about to get done up. I cannot tell what engine size it is. My engine cover shows V-Tech, but surely does not feel like it. Can I find out my engine size by my VIN?

    That's the engine ID code, not the VIN. A VIN is something completely different...

    :werd:

    Is it a single-cam engine? Or dual-cam? If it's a single-cam, then it's a D16Z6. If it's a dual-cam, then it's a B16A3...and this is assuming that the engine in question is the stock engine...

    re-read your valve cover. i would bet you $100 it doesn't say V-Tech on it.

    anyways, just check the block. it has the engine size on it. what year is it? b16's didnt come out until the later years.
