    I don't mean to rain on your parade, but are you sure on that one? Because I know that when I swapped my F-series (SOHC VTEC) for my H-series (DOHC VTEC), the two solenoids were not compatible.

    out of curiousity, why would a d series solenoid benefit a b series motor? wouldnt it work the other way around?

    its not a matter of D series vs B series parts.... they are the same
    BUT
    JDM ones work off of a negative pulse(?)
    USDM ones work off of a possitive pulse (?) (could have these mixed up but they are opposite)

    so if you are running a JDM solenoid with a USDM ECU VTEC will not work properly
    there are ways too wire shit up to make it work but it is easier to just swap solenoids and sensor units (if you already had a VTEC engine, or you can go to a junkyard and get one)

    it doesnt benefit anything...but if I needed one (lets say my b16 solenoid doesnt work) I would have a wider selection of engines to look 4 one :p
