    The market is becoming thinner and thinner when it comes to D series parts up for sale. A lot of the name brands companies have discontinued the production of SOHC parts. Some people cant afford a B16/B18/H22/F22, or just love their SOHC.

    Im looking to compile a list of good name companies that still make or sell Performance SOHC parts. Sadly Skunk2, and Crower are out of the picture, and our friends at SwapShop Racing stopped making D series parts as well.

    Lets band together d Series/SOHC owners!

    LIST:

    Head

    Supertech (Valves, Springs, Retainers, Seals, Guides)
    KMS (Springs,Valves, Retainers, Seals)
    AEM (Cam Gears)
    Bisimoto (Cams, Cam Gears, Springs, Retainers)
    Zex/Comp Cams (Cams, Springs, Retainers)
    Ferrea (Valves)
    Edelbrock (Cam Gears)
    Blox (Springs, Valves, Cams)
    Blackworks (Valves)
    Crane (Cams)
    Skunk2 (Cam Gears)
    Crower (Cams, Rods, Springs, Retainers)
    Fidanza (Cam Gears)

    Bottom End

    Wiseco (Pistons)
    Nippon (Pistons)
    SRP (Pistons)
    CP (Pistons)
    Arias (Pistons)
    Eagle (Rods, Cranks)
    YCP/NPR (Pistons)



    Help add to the list, If you know of or use any brands that are still in service and continue manufacturing, Post it!

    FJ distributors carries a lot of parts, and Bisimoto are dedicated to SOHCs, but D's and F's.

    I'm still working on my motor(actually a D15 though).

    Arias still makes off the shelf pistons IIRC. According to Crower's catalog, they still make parts too(rods, cams) and I'm not sure but Exospeed had cams for the D-series at one point(not sure about now, but I do know they're still in business).

    How about valve train components? I was looking at buying a complete valve train from Crower before they stopped selling stuff off their site.

    I don't think so; I only see valves on there. That brings up Web Cam though; they still sell their own valvesprings and do regrinds.

    Vitara is actually the name of the car btw. "Vitara pistons" come from the Suzuki Vitara. They're usually manufactured by YCP and NPR(oe replacement); though I believe YCP now manufactures units specifically for Hondas(I think an ebay seller carries these and maybe FJ in the future).
