Finally found some engine info by looking at Window Stickers and doing a lot of web searching. Thought this might interest some of you. I know I was wondering.

2016 Civic Sedan EX-T uses the L15B7 engine.

Found in:
2016 Honda Civic turbo (US)
Engine Type: In-Line 4-Cylinder with Single Scroll MHI TD03 Turbo and Internal Wastegate
Boost Pressure: 16.5 psi
Displacement: 1,496 cc (91.3 cu in) Direct Injection
Bore and Stroke: 73.0 mm x 89.4 mm
Compression: 10.6:1
Power: 174 HP @ 6000 rpm
Torque: 162 lb·ft @ 1700-5500 rpm
Redline: 6,500 rpm

The normally aspirated 2.0 liter engine used in the 2016 Civic are K20C2 engines.

Found in:
2016 Honda Civic (US)
Displacement: 1,996 cc (121.8 cu in) PGM-FI
Bore and Stroke: 86 mm x 85.9 mm
Compression: 10.8:1
Power: 158 HP @ 6500 rpm
Torque: 138 lb·ft @ 4200 rpm
Redline: 6,700 rpm

The engine specs come from Wikipedia so take them with a grain of salt. The engine designations come off window stickers I saw at the dealer or on line.

I believe the Civic Type R engine is the K20C1 and I cannot find anything on the future SI engines which is rumored to be a detuned K20C1. My guess it will be called a K20C3 which would mirror what happened with the EP3 Type R/Si models. They had K20A and K20A3's respectively.

still wondering how close the L15B7 is to the L15A in the fit..

Since it is in the same engine family, the size, the architecture (SOHC, bore and stroke) and the placement of the devices on the engine (compressor, alternator, intakes and exhaust) must be all very similar. Otherwise it would be a different engine family.
