Engine Honda L15A/L15B

Engine Honda L15A/L15B

L15A initially did not differ much from L13A – the same layout, the same 8 spark plugs. Over time, an “upgrade” version with the iVTEC system appeared. The number of candles decreased to standard, but the candles themselves became iridium (improved spark, increased service life), and space for VTEC cams on the camshaft was also freed up – before that, the candles interfered. The new engine got 20 hp more than the 1.3-liter, and the total “herd” was 110. These motors have long occupied places under the hoods of Honda “up to Civic”. It is worth saying that various modifications of L-motors are produced to this day (2013) and so far they are not expected to replace them.
