1.5L VTEC or Non-VTEC
Depending when a block was produced, it could have different features. The first edition was a 1.5-liter carbureted motor with a 9:6:1 ratio for compression. These were found in the early 1990s Civic and DelSol vehicles in the American and Japanese market. These editions work well with the 5-speed manual transmissions built during this time period.
The D15B block was upgraded in 1997 to feature more improved technologies. The carbureted fuel system was updated to a multi-port design. This was due to the invention of the VTEC platform. The variable valve technology required a change to the compression ratio. All P08 head code editions are VTEC enabled are have a 9:3:1 ratio.
