    there are vtec d15's. you could swap the head for one with vtec.

    yeah, small turbo with a good tune would be a bigger increase in power. lightly boosted should still be fairly reliable too. change to arp head studs at the least too i'd say.

    If money is out of the question just swap a B16, build a little bit of the internals and then turbo it with about 5-8lbs. psi, thats what my plan is

    If money is a bit tight, stay away from the E-gay turbo. Its half the price, but it only lasts for a fraction of the time a quality turbo will. Just hit up CL and local forums, theyre all good sources for quality turbos with little to no miles on em. And, you can often find a quality turbo for the same price as an E-gay unit.

    No need for Hondata, especially if you're trying to save money. Look into getting your ECU chipped and running one of the free tuning software programs like Crome...
