The Honda B16A is the first B-series engine, a part from the family of DOHC engines with four cylinders that Honda introduced in 1988. It was the first VTEC engine (B16A SIR-V), and was initially found in the 89-93 Honda Integra XSi, 89-91 Honda CRX SiR and the 89-91 Honda Civic SiR. As its name indicates, it has a displacement of 1.6 liters, and produces 170 horsepower. 

The second generation can be found in the 92-93 JDM Honda Integra XSi and JDM Civic SiR, the 92-94 JDM Civic SiR/SiRII, the 92-95 JDM CR-X del Sol, 96-98 JDM Civic SiR/SiRII, as well as the 96-00 JDM Civic Ferio Si. The redline of the B16A engine is 8200 rpm, and VTEC engages at 5500 RPM. 

The B16A engine also comes with one of four transmission options: YS1, S4C, Y21 and S21, with optional LSD. Due to the popularity of the 92-95 Civic, finding a B16A engine for sale is difficult if you’re in search of a good condition one.
