    read the post "is this a good idea" where ef9civicgen4 said you can make a d series fast , ESPECIALLY if its not vtec...

    just wondering why the especially if its not vtec....
    i have a dx and was planning on doing a DPFI to MPFI and then a z6 head and turbo...

    just wondering if i should go non vtec for the turbo application...

    when working with the D series motors, the SOHC vtec motors are actually probably a better choice. I have heard that they are actually very strong. D15s on the other hand tend to break rods and put holes in the block.

    to be honest, single cams aren't AS fast as dohc but they ARE cool for a budget.

    That seems to be a little opinionated. I drove a b16 worked over n/a and I drive a d15 vtec not quite as modded. I still run with most of the same cars, P/W ratio notwithstanding I feel like the little engine actually 60fts better and has more low end as crazy as that sounds. For a budget and good driveability don't knock the D.

    thanks for the tardcart comment of the day.



    You can push a D series to about 200hp with a budget turbo kit. You'll be smoking anyone with I/H/E, thats for sure.
