  • DOHC Dual VTC
  • High-Tumble Intake Port
  • High Efficiency Cooled Cylinder Head
  • Piston with Cooling Gallery
  • Sodium Filled Exhaust Valve
  • High Efficiency Oil Pump
  • Idling Stop System

The Specifications of 201 hp 1.5 VTEC Turbo Engine:

Just fuel injection and valve type, all specifications of 201 hp 1.5 are entirely different from 127 hp 1.0 L VTEC Turbo Engine

  • Engine Type: liquid-cooled inline 4-cylinder
  • Valve Type: DOHC
