Default D15B engine question

Well my question is will the D15B drop in my 2000 civic EX and hook right up or is there other stuff that needs to be done to make it work?
And what is up with the dual VTEC? What is diff between a single VTEC and the dual?
Thanks alot.

Maybe your thinking about dual over head cams? There is 2 vtec cams instead of one.

yes the d15b has 2 vtec solnoids, you only need to hook up the one for high lob,
one is for low end vtec and other is for high end, if you have inspections or emmisions i would say just find another d16y8 to drop in or a d16y7 and put your head on it.

There are two kinds of D15B out there. One with dual stage VTEC and one with regular VTEC. If you want dual stage you'd have to use its original ECU.

Does anyone know where i can find a d16y8 long block with lower miles? I found one on ebay with 48,000 miles for $500 shipped. I call the guy and when i went to buy it, it already sold. Im going to call him back tomorrow and see if he might have another one.

srsly^

I don't understand how people seem to think you can just drop in a motor other than the one that came with the car, and expect EVERYTHING to "just bolt/plug right up." Every swap has it's quirks
