It's a Honda, **** isn't prone to failing on a Honda motor... that is as long as the motor has all it's normal maintenance.

D16z6 is the engine code, It's a D series (SOHC vtec) that is a 1.6L 4 cylinder. z6 is just the specific designation.

it is the second best SOHC motor. it is lightweight, powerful, efficient, and responds to mods well. if its got to be SOHC, then thats a good one to have. the only one really any better is the d16y8. it has slightly better head chamber design, but its not a big deal. if you can find a y8 head, you could put it on your motor and it would be great.

Also, the d16y8 is obd2 compared to the z6 being obd1. and the y8 produces 2 more hp and 1 more ft lb, not that that makes any difference at all.

Cheers guys, understand a bit better now.
So the engine is a good one, responds well to mods, its a OBD1 so any mods i see for a OBD1 series then i can do to mine.....I was reading info about ECU upgrades and it referred to OBD1 type ecu chips, so i can do stuff to my ecu with the OBD1 spec....?

Many thanks
