The OHC Vtec engine is a B15 C2, the 1.5 should be a B15 something.

I wonder why they chose to name it B15 when, traditionally, B-series has been DOHC.
Any idea?

Type 1 OHCs had B15B9 stamped, Type 2 OHCs are stamped B15C2, even the non VTEC ones. You won't find any aftermarket support on the internet, though this seems to be a variation of the D15B engine, albeit detuned.

From your other posts I acertain that you have OHC VTEC. I was referring to OHC 1.5 when I said "definitely not B15C2".

They dont usually distinguish in engine codes between the VTECs and the Non-VTECs.

***BUMP***
Was doing a little research on the OHC's engine codes for the 1.5L versions in India and came across this info courtsy clubcivic.com-
anyone have the specs for a B15 motor? - ClubCivic.com - Honda Civic Forum post #8.
B15A
1.5L 16V SOHC non-VTEC PGM-FI
1493cc
'96-'99 Honda City LXi, EXi, EXi AT
Asia Market
100 hp @ 6500 rpm
98 lb-ft @ 4600 rpm

B15B
1.5L 16V SOHC non-VTEC PGM-FI
1493cc
'99-'02 Honda City
Asia Market
105 hp @ 6400 rpm
100 lb-ft @ 4600 rpm

B15C
1.5L 16V SOHC VTEC PGM-FI
1493cc
'99-'02 Honda City
Asia Market
115 hp @ 6800 rpm
103 lb-ft @ 4600 rpm

I own a Type 2 Gen1 OHC (2002 model) and unlike what ported head has posted the engine number starts with B15B9 but the specs match B15A's as per the above info.
Trouble is there is almost no info on these engines on the web. The D series engine match the SOHC specs of our engines, D15B7 for the non-VTEC 1.5L and D15B for the V-TEC(detuned for Indian conditions).

Why is there no info on the B15 series engines?

Thats bcoz our engine is a combination of a B15 block and a D16Y8 head.
