    then what head can i mate to my stock d15 to produce 130-ish whp? are there any other engines that will bolt up to a dx transmission?

    I'm looking for the absolute most cost effective means, to answer the previous question, thats why I was looking into the jdm d15's, as they are similar to my stock engine and it looks like it may bolt in with just some wiring.

    i wouldnt mind that number coming after some bolt ons.

    and no, i dont think a phone will power my car very well.

    hey i think i have that phone heh.

    WHY CAN'T PEOPLE SPELL VTEC? It has no dash, its all caps, and it has no "H", the electronic company has an "H"...

    Sometimes it has a dash. Look in a Helms Manual.

    The people I got it from offer a 6 month warranty and sell these along with other engines like hot cakes on eBay. The engine I got is clean as new, and I recieved it in under a week. I e-mailed others that had purchased engines from these people (makoto_autoparts). Plus I needed a replacement cause the huge ass 92 hp the DX engine puts out wasnt gonna cut it.

    We did a d16y8 head on my old d15 block. It turned out nice but the kid we built it for ended up wrecking a couple weeks later after he added NOS. Dumbass needed break work instead.

    its not the same thing, they have better cams the block is also stronger and can withstand forced induction this is the strongest 1.5 and it would be fine to put in his car ifhe plans to turbo it and it wont be to costly
