    Uh........ok

    Is there a swap related question there? It seems just like a statement.

    You should put that in your original post so people know what your talking about. All you did was say something...you didn't say anything about asking if it wasa good motor or not.

    Anyways, for a D-Series motor I think it is probably the best engine around. Although if your on a budget its probably not at that feasible to go with it over the z6. Hmotorsonline lists the longblock at $435. Where as I can get a good z6 complete swap at a junkyard for like $600.

    the D15b has a slightly more agressive cam than the z6, but less displacement. lb. for lb. they are very simalar. I just happened to get a better deal on D15b than a z6, plus most z6's have higher milage since they are USDM vs.an imported mortor with 40k or less.
