yes, there is a d17. sohc vtec. it is possible to put it into your sol. obd2 started in 96. youd be better off sticking with a d16z6, but the 'S' model only comes with d15b7. are you sure you don't have a Si? if you haVE a d15 and youre wondering which one to swap, get the d16z6. itll be cheaper and easier to find parts for. and i dont think the d17 makes any more hp than the z6 anyways. if you have a d15 and you want to swap either of these motors, youll need a vtec solenoid and a different ECU in addition to the motor/head.D3Ls0LGrE3nBe4N said:Alright guys/girls, first time post and ive got a weird question ive been thinking about. Im not best with engiens, more of custom work so help me out.
Would it be possible cus I have heard there is a d17 out on the what 2000 civics? Or something like that. Would it be possible to put it into my sol? Have to change the head or something.. cus after 95 they went to obdII? Or would it just be better to stick with a d16z6? Any help would be nice.
Ah yes before I forget. Proud owener of a 95 del sol s. Do not have a picture of it right now have had it for five months. I would feel weird posting a picutre of a five color car. (In the middle of body work) Will get one up soon though. Thanks for any help i get.
