ok many thanks for posting that photo....i have never heard of the w9 before. I just found some info on it.
The motors available through 01 to 05 civics (SI and SIRs excluded) were basically fitted with D16V1, D16W9, D17A2, D17A5, D17Z3 or D17Z4. So you can see there are two 1.6 motors and the rest 1.7.
All Civics here in North America (01-05) were 1.7 and not 1.6 but it seems Honda had those two smaller less powerful motors that were fitted in the Pakistani civics.
So you stand corrected..its the 1.6 and not 1.7...but doesnt sound right though...when they already had the 1.6 D16 motors through 96-00, the 1.7 should have been offered atleast on the VTI Oriel...top of the line car in the civic lineup. I guess 1.7 was offered only over here and in Japan.
