    Well there goes my question, Is my stock Cx block reliable with a mild P&P VTEC head and turbo set at or lower than 7 PSI. Ive heard several responds that the blocks cant cut it with the VTEC head. Is that true?? And well I take in mind that if im going to be boosting at 7psi I will have a good fuel managment. But thats why i was asking because well I think is not worth reinforcing the block and to see if anybody knows if the CX can cut in boost levels lower than 7psi and a VTEC head.

    Any info would be appreciated before I start wasting money.... :( Thanks, Ivan

    Screw VTEC, get a DOHC ZC and boost that. Much more reliable for boost as you have the ability to seperatly time the exhuast and intake cams.

    Well I'll i rather buy the whole d16z6 longblock with the vtec head for 400 bucks then boost that to 6 psi. Better for my Del sol. But thanks for your opinions guys. :) Im going to screw my d15b8.

    ^^ Thats what I was trying to say. I meant a full swap, not just a head swap.
