    what is your deffinition of fast?

    my buddy's got a 95 civic hatch, no carpet, no rear seats, but not completely gutted yet. still, lighter than a coupe. anyway. he's got a JDM D15B i forget, but it has vtec. he's got about 20 more stock hp than the motor in question. And he also has a edelbrock victor x intake manifold, 4-2-1 headers, 62mm throttle body, 2.25" exhaust all the way back, no ps, and no ac. My stock+ B16 w/ ps and ac in my full interior 00 civic ex took him by 4 cars at 100mph

    what is a powerchamber?? a catalytic converter? but hi-flo?

    oh really... the powerchamber is a carbon fiber intake (the best flowing intake but with dc ceramic header and 2.5 inch magna flow exhaust it ads 6 wheel hp and 7 foot lbs of torque guaranteed....
    worked wonders to my Z6 i took a GSR teg... :) I'm no interior (driverseat back) no A/C, No P/s with a honda freak with ebay header and GSR b pipe

    Naw i've totally seen those intakes before. I've never heard of them called powerchambers. I was under the impression PasswordJDM makes them. Eh but that's cool.

    So have you figured anything out yet?

    BOUGHT a Z6

    i recommend a you either borrow one or buy it its about 180.00 shipped, kinda expensive but think it is worth it, drove a GSR swap in a 99 SI and all i have to say is DAMN :eek: that is fast, powerchamber intake. ebay header, magnaflow exhaust, 105 in third is pretty respectable by me... the powerstroke didn't stand a chance lol


    diesels are SLOW!!!

    I saw that intake in that pic you posted in a hotrod magazine in my autoshop class. It's called the "whale penis" intake. Seriously that's what it's called hahahaha.

    idk for sure, but my guess is yes because there is still whales on earth, if they didn;t they would be extinct by now

    I personally think that the D series motor gets less credit then it is capable of.

    some choice non-vtec engines have some potential such as the D16A6, but the D15B7/B8 blocks aren't capable of decent power without a Y8 or Z6 head.

    Lol my dad has a 700+ Hp 04' Chevy Duramax in our driveway right now. And we have an 06' Dodge with a little over 500hp, the dodge has a lot more low end than the chevy but the chevy beats the shit out of the dodge from about 35mph and up. i'm scared to drive the chevy, sometimes i take one of them to school when my honda's in the shop or somethin, an my god!!!! can burn the tires forever if i wanted too.
