I have d15b2 and considering swap. I have a 85-87 crx si motor in back yard. With the mpfi. It says pe7 on the head and IM and ecu. I will post pics if needed. Just wondering if I can use the IM from the crx motor on my d15b2? Along with the ecu and dizzy... it has vaccum lines and such on the dizzy yada yada yada....

You can spend $500-800 on a jdm zc sohc 1.5 or 1.6L non VTEC obd0 engine tranny and ecu, now all you have to do is modify your dpfi wire harness, and maybe track down a resistor box if it's not included in the swap. You'll gain the most power this way compared to just slapping on a mpfi intake manifold and dizzy. I bought a d16a6 engine, tranny, ecu, complete front suspension, hubs, and axles for $300 It was actually a 1990 civic EX that was rear ended, totalled and only had 135K.
Lets see, a 1991 civic dx had 92 hp, the si had 110 hp, so thats 18 hp difference. Remember that your d15 is .1 liters less displacement and different cam grind. So to get max power from a dpfi conversion on a d15 is to swap out the d15 cam for a d16a6 cam, even then, i don't think you'll gain 18 hp.
Now on the std d15, you only have 70 hp, i believe the 20 hp difference is mostly due to the cam profile and ecu tune. So maybe a dpfi swap in a civic std will technically result in the biggest gain.
But of course the biggest gain will be a mini-me or dohc zc dpfi-mpfi.
If you have a tight budget, pull-a-part is your friend. you should be able to get everything you need for a basic mpfi conversion for a c-note or two, if you can, be sure to grab the d16a6 camshaft 8)

The hp will be about the same between the D15 and D16 bottom ends. The D16 will have a bit more torque though and that's a big deal on a honda lol

people have two turbod B16, but I think it's a loss of a twin turbo 1.5L, because the amount of exhaust gas is relatively low.

Picture corrected to avoid more confusion.

If your engine is like this:

then is a dohc engine, and its already mpfi. Like it was explained in the first post.

Doing the DPFI to MPFI in my 90 Hatch. Trying to get the 2 pins out...C1 and C2 to move to
B10 and B12.......Is there a special way to remove these pins. I've been trying for awhile with
no success. It was easier changing the motor over than this. I'm starting to go Cross Eyed.....posting.php?mode=reply&f=19&t=129#

Postby knockz87 » Fri Jun 21, 2013 8:05 am

i am really with conversion from DPFI to MPFi.(NOOOOOOBBBBBB)
I have a 1991 Civic HB 1.5 engine with D15b2 with DPFI.
Can anyone show me or make a video on how to do the conversion? So i can follow it step by step, because abbreviation and short term for parts are kinda confusing for me. and can someone PM the list of parts i'll be needing for this conversion. Thanks!
