Default Can ANYONE tell me the stock vtec sohc engine that came in a 1993 Honda Del Sol?

I currently bought a 93' Honda Del Sol with a blown up engine. The owner told me the stock original engine was a vtec but I would like to get the exact same engine so swapping it back into the car will go as smooth as possible. Thanks

And this also is my FIRST time doing a engine swap EVER.

So any advice would be much appriciated. Thanks.

d15b7 is the non vtec version which u dont want

the d16z6 vtec engine is what you want

you can try craiglist or your local junk yard

online does have some rebuilt ones for 1000 plus your core

or used for 500 to 700

swapping will require some knowledge but just use google it has alot of information to sites that guides you

good luck
