    Soon here I am hopefully gong to get a 99 civic coupe w/ a D16. I dont really know the kind of power the D series motors are capable. (not really a big fan of the Ds)

    I was hoping to get 175-200hp N/A w/ I/H/E, Intake man., throttlebody, cam, cam gear, underdrive pulley, and port mathching the IM, header, and head.... am I going to be able to make my goal? if not what can I do? And are there any more power adders (no boost or nitrous) that can give me more power?

    Swap in a b18c then throw all of thoes parts at it, then you can see your goal.

    Are you talking about 175-200@crank or at wheel? If you're talking about wheel hp then good luck but you should be able to get 175 at crank with those mods. Just research the brands you buy and get the best you can afford. Gude makes a good head package for about $1650 it'll get you close to your goal alone Gude - Product Description (it's down at the bottom of the page) just add intake, header and a good exhaust system and you've got it. Good luck let me know what works for you as I also have a d16z6 I'm looking into mod'ing.

    Well thanks for that info I don't know a huge amount about engine building myself so any info as to what company's products are good/bad is helpful. I just know what i've read about online/magazines/books.

    Bisi can probably set you up with a 250whp D-series.

    There are some guys in the 160-175whp mark with off the shelf stuff and P29 pistons. I believe someone on Honda-Tech had more.

    I would only suggest a B18C swap if your power goal is higher than 200whp.

    Would a boosted d15b sohc vtec with a t3/t4 turbo running about 8 psi with some i/h/e, a good tune and maybe some internal stuff get past 200whp??
    internal...maybe skunk2 stage 2 camshafts, and whatever else i can get my hands on...at school right now can't think of what else i was going to say...but ya opinions??

    Aight, sweet. That's what i'm hopin for. I wanna own this kid from my highschool, he has an h22. nothing else. just the motor pretty much. nothing special about it. it's an ek hatch, he ran like 15 sec/quarter mile at the track....an he brags about how fast it is. i want the low compression for the turbo so i have low/mid/high all covered.. think i'd beat him??

    the d-series motors are possible to get that kind of wheel horses out of but you have to do more than just what you listed. First of I would suggest doing a hybrid motor. If I am not mistaken the car you are buying already has the d16y8 or d16z6 sohc vtec. So you need to find a d15b7 block and put your head after first port and pollishing, 5 angle valve job, and titanium valve springs, and retainers, on that block, go with the y8 ecu. Find a good engine managment system, intake manifold, throttle body, cam, cam gear, headers, full exhaust. I would also probably go with the underdrive pully like you said, and even throw in a cai of course. There are probably some other things you could do as well. but that could be close to 175 to 200 whp. If your lucky. I looked into it. D-series motors are good turbo motors. They run good with the turbos and are very easy to build up for a turbo setup but going with an all motor setup they won't be the best setup.

    Yeah dude!!1! That would totally rock!!! I suggest you get a DC header and an AEM intake to go with your turbo! I've heard they totally work good together! With a setup like that you could probably make 400 whp!!!!111!!!111

    +1. Do your car for you, not because of someone else. If everyone did their car to show off some cockbag, we'd all be a bunch of reckless, rice infested, broke faggots. But do it for you. Nobody else. And on the picture, kinda reminds me of one of those ebay pictures...

    +1 again. I'm going to end up spending a LOT of money getting around here too, probably also a waste of my time and money. I'm lookin to get like 160-170ish, and I'm gonna end up spending around 1k on a good header alone. Sucks.

    If you're spending $1000 on a header, aim higher than 160whp. lol

    Haha, well 160 is starting. I figure it won't hurt to get good quality now when I'll need it later, no sense in spending money on something now, then spending more money on the same thing later, you know?

    start your own thread...

    as for THIS thread, i like it when people want to get big power out of the d-series. to me this is both fun to drive and a sleeper at the tracks. :)

    you don't quite understand i think... on the main page, find the appropriate section for your topic, and choose the link that says 'start thread'. that is where you start topics which you would like people to respond to. you should not do what you have done here and ask a different question in someone else's thread. :)

    I was talking about all motor notice how I said: "D-series motors are good turbo motors. They run good with the turbos and are very easy to build up for a turbo setup but going with an all motor setup they won't be the best setup."
