    If you wanted to just keep it a stock IM stay with the z6, if not go with skunk2 (I dont know if they even have it for your car) as i have heard very good things about those. as far as throttle bodies, any b-series throttle body would work as they are are all the same bore...except for the type-r...

    cuz i cant afford that! I have to stick with my D16 for a long time! Im only in high school and have a shitty part time job! I would just throw a supercharger or turbo in there if I had the money but right now all I can do is make the best all motor D16 and i think that has some pride to it!

    You can still make good power with a D16, trust me. It has power potential very close to the B16. The Skunk2 manifold is around $300, if you're willing to pay that for a small power gain... if you can get it, and I'm not 100% sure that it's even available yet. You can use a D16Y8 manifold. It came on the 96-00 EX Civics, and is the best flowing out of the OEM D block intake manifolds. You should be able to find one at a junkyard fairly cheap.

    If you add an Integra throttle body, make sure you match port the intake manifold to it. You don't want a hard step between the IM and the TB.

    Get a Venom intake manifold. My friend has one on his Turbo civic with a D16 and it works great. A little pricey, but worth it.

    Also, D16's do have potential. My friend runs 12.3 in the 1/4.

    save that money, slap some 85-87 integra rods and piston, Y8 head, and a good JR supercharger. Enough to pull out some good numbers.
