This actually came up in discussion way back. Lets do a crude comparison: D16A6 = medium; D16Z6 = tall; B16A = tallest. Now as it has been established, the B needs a mount kit in the 4th gen because it is too tall and will hit the hood (not because its mounts are in the wrong place, as most people think). The reason it doesn't need the kit in the 5th gen is that the engine bay is just a little taller than in the 4th gen. However, any D series engine is short enough (as in not tall enough) to fit into the 4th gen without trimming hood supports (except the DOHC D engines).
