Hi Guys.. Would appreciate if anyone has the engine specifications of the B15 SOHC motor that came in the 2001 Honda City- I think this car came only in the far east Asia and India. If anyone knows the cam details/compression/Pistons info it would really help.. Thanks in advance!

Bump! No one? These engines are available pretty cheap with low milage. If only someone can figure out what internals they got :)

Nope, there was a B15 Vtec engine in the 3rd gen Honda City... but I know nothing about it.

I think it would be a good idea to build this engine if it were the same block as all B's...The B's all have same bore's but with diffrent strokes, just like the D-series, or any Honda engine series in that case... so, i think this means that the engine have a lesser stroke from the factory... so let's assume all the assembly were the same ass all B's in the B15 block except the crank... that means that you have about 1.5 mm to add to the connecting rod length to achive a rod/stroke ratio of 1.76, not bad... so considering you wanted to push it so you fitted custom pistons with a compression height of 25 mm, then this gives you a chance to make a custom rod length of 139.5 which translates to an R/S ratio of 1.81!!! but will you setup the engine good to run with that R/S ratio or not? that's the question.

I think the best way to find out is by eather you going to the junk yard where that engine is or by simply buying the block...

Dude this aint a B series motor!! Its a SOHC thats rumored to be close to the D series- only that it comes from the far east and has cheaper parts (maybe) in it

I searched all over google and couldn't find any info on something called Honda B15 engine... usually there are hidden Honda engines that we have never heard of... like the D15Y2 that is in my 2005 Civic :hammer:
