I don't think there is. I'm using a vtec (d16y8) dizzy on my nonvtec (d15b2) engine, no problem.

OBD1 vtec and non vtec d series dizzies have different bolt patterns, yes. Z1/Z6 is the same and B7/B8 is the same, but those two groups are different from each other.

I'm not sure about bolt pattern, but I don't see why a vtec and nonvtec b series dizzy would function differently if the d series doesn't.

I'm not sure, but that's basically what I did with my car except in d series terms.
