It's a D16A9, you never had this engine in the US(or even the one in the sedan for that matter). It's a close relation to the engine most US people know as a ZC. In stock form it has a little less power than the B16A1 that was available in these, but with little tweaking you can make more power and a good deal more torque through out the revband compared to a B16.What is the engine designation on that 1.6 DOHC? I've never seen one before I don't think. I had a b16a (1.6 dohc vtec) powered 5th gen civic, and that was super fun car.
