d15z6 is vtec e > not as jerky as vtec kicks in earlier because of the more economic non-vtec cam. but 115bhp aint bad for 1.5.
d15z6 is SOHC aswell


not sure if they r related??

you can change over the cam train and ecu for proper vtec. i read about it a while ago cant remember it right now. i think the cam was from a d16y8 engine, then i think you either swap over ecus or get an aftermarket. ill try a find the thread again.
