    I Have a 93 Honda Del Sol b15. I am either looking to upgrade to an imported b16 or b18c1. Or just rebuild the b15 with high performance internals. If any one has any advice as to which of these i should look into please reply. Thanks alot.

    There is no such thing is a b15. I'm guess you mean a d15? Its it a d15b vtec? If not I'll say get a d16z6 if you are on the budget. If money is not a concern the get a b-series. But remember that you can build a fast sohc turbo motor for the cost of a b-series swap.

    That motor isn't really worth much for making power, IMO. However, I've heard stories of people doing it and being just fine, as well as failing miserably. Overall, I don't think you'll want to bother with it.

    Build a turbo-D. Find an A6 bottom end, a Y8 head\intake, do a kit for 10psi, and you'll be rolling on B16s :)

    a b16 with minor mods would light up a d16 vtec turbo, seen it a million times. Stock b16 with lightweight flywheel and header verse mostly stock d series turbo. Not to mention if you are thinking about going turbo go with a b series and it will make far more power on the same turbo setup as the d. You just have to add the price of a swap, i know this is pricey trust me. I think its worth it but plenty of others here will dissagree. Good luck.

    i agree if you have a good d15b7 turbo it, like a bad mutha' til you blow it up.
    then use the still good parts and build a mini-me turbo well and you'll be set.
