Default V16 engine???

So, I was in Track Auto (Small Mid-East Coast chain of parts stores, Bought out by Advance Auto Parts, everything's 30% or more off!) getting brake shoes for my wagon. I'm the only person that I know that wears out rear shoes faster than front pads...

Anyhow, In talking to the parts clerk, he asked if I was going to do anything in terms of performance to the car. I said "C'mon guy, It's a 1985 4wd wagon. What can I possibly do to it?"

He said that they had an article in a recent Honda tuning magazine about these and a V16 engine out of a later model civic like a 1992 might bolt up to my tranny.

V16??? I don't remember that engine code being listed in my previous post about engine codes.

Engine codes... Alphabet Soup.

yeah, he meant d16 or b16, the only car manufacturer to make a v16 engine for a production car in recent years is cadillac and that is not out yet. there's a world of a difference between a d16 and a v16.

a v16? hmmmmm i thiink VW recently made some engine called the "w......fill in the blank." so basically.....a "W" would be two v8's formed to make one engine, or something like that. what an *** kicker that would be. being that this isnt a water cooled vw site though, i doubt anybody will care to expand on that.

well there is no 16valve motor that will bolt up to ur tranny really u can mount a ew4 or ew3 from a civic or crx si with 12valves which would be alot more power...u could keep carb setup or do alot of wiring and convert to mpfi but u have a d15a(insert # here) the newer d series mount differently and wont work in ur engine bay but the d15(ew4) will mount and is a better motor

I think its that.

D and V is kind of hard to mix up, unless he slurs and mumbles.
