Wow, Thats a D17. In Japan i know they dont have numbers for there engines sort of like our D15B8 or B7 or B2, its just D15B. I think some sellers have taken that and dubbed all SOHC Motor's D15B's.

That's why I was wondering. I know all about the lack of identifacation on JDM motors, like having to explain exactaly what ZC your running.

My ZC Is the JDM Version of the D16Z6, Which is the OBD1 SOHC Vtec Motor in America. Why not get a D16Z6? try finding one with 48k with tranny for $400 installed, BEYAW!!!

Way ahead of you, I was just wondering if any of the 7th gen guys had heard of this, or if it was true.

negative i already told you man , theres no 3 stage VTEC. dont let the fact they call the lobes on the cam primary secondary and middle(when your reading specs or what not). theres 3 rockers on real VTEC not VTEC-E engines. 2 of the rockers the valves ride on all the time , and when VTEC engages both valves run on the middle one. 2 stages. as far as i know , there is only 3 SOHC engines that have real VTEC. D16Z6 , D16Y8 and D16W8(newest). and theres 3 SOHC VTEC-E engines , D16Y5 , D15Z1 , and D17A2.
