Is this the USDM D15Z1? if so then..
1. 55+MPG!!!! one of Hondas best economy motors powered by VTEC-E
2. Extremly ball-less, has very little get up & go power. tranny is gear hella long as f***.
3. 92HP@5500 & 97ft lbs tq@4500. One of very very few Honda motors that moake more torque then it does HP lmao

D15Z1
Model: 1992-95 VX
Specs.: 1493cc, 16 valve SOHC VTEC-E, 9.3:1 compression
Power: 92 bhp @ 5,500 rpm
Torque: 97 ft.-lbs. @ 4,500 rpm
Redline: 7,000 rpm

Let's compare:

Quote:
D15B6
Model: 1988-91 HF, 1988-91 CRX-HF
Specs.: 1493cc, 8 valve SOHC, 9.1:1 compression
Power: 62 bhp @ 4,500 rpm
Torque: 83 ft.-lbs @ 3,000 rpm [70 bhp @ 4,500 rpm (1990-91)]
Redline: 6,800 rpm
Okay it's better than an HF

D16Z6
Model: 1992-95 Civic Si/EX, 1993-95 Del Sol Si

But not as good as an EX

It'll probably be cheaper to just swap in a D16Z6 than to try to mod a VTEC-E motor. Yes, it does have roller rockers but it primarily operates on 3 valves per cylinder then opens the 4th valve at....ummm hell I forgot, something like 4K rpm.

I used to work with a kid who put a JDM D15B VTEC in his CRX-HF and I thought it was a helluva fun car. A D16Z6 VX should be similar
