Yeah, in other words- this engine doesn't exist for the world or even the south east Asian markets. What Shan2nu meant was that it is a D15 (JDM) block with a D16Y8 head. Even though its called B15XX it is closer to the D15 than anything in the B-series.

Coming to aftermarket support- its there, one needs to look for parts like valvetrain upgrades suitable for a D15B (VTEC, or N-VTEC is usually specified). All D-series bore diameters are same, so pistons aren't a problem as well. Rods and stuff is a little difficult to get since the stroke is lower than the more popular D16.

Yeah, that was a typo.

D15 + D16Y8 = B15

So once again for a nube who is slightly confused on whose word to take to heart....
essentially what Honda has done is stick a JDM block D15 with a SOHC D16Y8 head that we call a B15 (that does not exist anywhere else)
1.) right?
2.) I want to get this straight before i get my hands dirty are you sure the block is a JDM standard D15?

Quoting the web page i found:
A “mini-me” is an informal name for a D-Series SOHC VTEC head mated to a D-Series SOHC non-VTEC block. Most mini-me swaps consist of D16Y8 or D16Z6 heads onto USDM D15B, D16A6, or D16Y7 blocks. JDM D15b VTEC heads will work as well

I'm presuming that's essentially what it is?

So with all this mixing and matching do you think a B series head would fit where the Y8 is?

No, B series engines are twin-cam/DOHC. Only hope is one of the D16A/Y/Z series heads.
