Default RE: Engine identification?

So that's not a typical D15B head? Weird...what is the main determining factor of hp? Like if this engine does consist of parts from multiple engines, what is the important one?

actually the 90-93 accord oil cap is on the upper right corner of the valve cover. looks like someone got jipped with a d15b block and a non vtec head.

Not all JDM D15B's are VTEC. A lot of times, if a Civic needs a new engine, it's cheaper to get a used D15 from Japan and use it in place of the stock D15 or D16. They are essentially the same as the USDM engines but stamped JDM-style.
