actually you have the D15B1. its only 62-70hp but in such a light chassis thats all it really takes. DPFI, SOHC, eight valve head. since its an 88 its only 62hp, and less reliable than later versions of the same generation later in the generation.

no no no the D15B2 has low 92 horsepower. the B1 and B2 are similar engiens but theyre not the same. a B2 is a B1 with a 16 valve head and it flows better...giving it 25-30 more horses.
