d16y5's make 115 hp and leanburn is only activated during uber low load conditions.

After the load sensitive vtec activates 16 valve operation the engine screams pretty good and is plenty powerful enough for any kind of driving including pulling long hills with a full load and passengers.

70 mpg or die modding
