phil, thats not true only the SI is DOHC VTEC the d16y8 is SOHC VTEC and has extra power over the non-vtec equivelent D16Y4 its noted that the SOHC VTEC is just VTEC, and not VTEC-e, like i've heard some people say. the D16Y5 is VTEC-E, designed for economy and works slightly differently to the regular SOHC VTEC in D16Y8 and D16Y1

lol @ vtec fanboi ok, so i got the si bit wrong, cause i'm not from america...sorry -_- ... also, your an idiot. vtec dosent just add power, it changes the lift of the valves based on a third lobe of the camshaft. vtec-e in the d16y5 uses a different system where it effectively only uses one valve on the intake side, and only opens the second intake valve slightly in order to reduce fuel buildup, this also increases atomisation, meaning a leaner mixture can be used, increasing fuel economy. it stays like this untill vtec kicks in, which is at a speed where the engine needs full lift in both valves in order to breathe properly. the whole idea that vtec=power is bullshit. learn how it works mate. kinda dohc?? lol it either is or it isnt buddy. also fail, out of the D16 motors, the whole D16Ax series were dohc, with the exception of the A6 and A7. its in your bloddy link there...LRN2READ

btw, by si, you mean EM1 right? cause that definately came with a b16 dohc vtec

Dude, thank you! i am so sick of hearing how v tech makes you go fast! BS it means that unless under load or throttleing you go slower, its for gasmileage not power. finally one who understands how it works, been a mechanic for years and we are few. not to mention the b series = dohc... not... i have a 95 accord with the f22b1 and its single i promise ive had it apart more than once.

f22 is a single cam f series, not b series, and is the basis for the dohc h series used in the prelude. the exception to this is the f20c, and f22c1 from the s2000 which are dual cam, derived from the k series engine number...first letter is series, next 2 numbers is capacity, and anyting after that is a variation
