    my d15b had one solenoid, is it called single vtec?

    the mechanic put off two solenoid (which may be called stage 3 vtec) from d16w9 and placed on the same location at d15b.

    does this alteration is useful for disturbing for engine?

    I had D17a2 installed in my Civic 2002 Vti, it was alot better then D15 interms of Power and high end torque. it has more bhp and you can rev it with some heart. and rely on heavy tuning aswell.


    I dont know about earlier engine in Civic 2000 or 1995. but in my experience If you have 7th gen civic then always try D17a1 (for Exi , this does not have VTEC) and D17a2 for Vti .

    I had Stage 1 done on my D17a2 (headers, pipings and Intake and Plugs) i used to beat beat 1.8 Civic and Corolla 1.8 .. marginally. (means it was equal having 1.8 civic or corolla)
    Respect comes from fear.

    If its Civic 2002-05 then d17a2 otherwise d15b as its easily available.Yet if d17a2 is properly swaped its better then d15b for N/A as it will be less old,New tech and not headache like old Ds.

    2 solenoid (3-stage) will only work if you have the ecu to manage it. otherwise they can be wired together to work as a single vtec solenoid. so the question is, what ECU do you have?

    dunno if d16w9 solenoids are supposed to fit in a d15b.

    true that... but one thing i've learnt here at PW... is to not overwhelm a guy with info unless he knows what to do with it... this guy doesnt seem like he's going to do this himself
