    yes it will be worth it there good motors but we have no clue what your goal is as far as power so it might not be worth it

    Yeah well i dont really have a huge goal. all i know is i think my HP rating for the stock D series is like 102. think the B series is like what 170.. just looking for a lil more kick for the street tired of my old 1.5. so what should i expect when i get this put in.

    im not real sure if you had a chipped ecu it should top out more than that but if you use the b16 tranny it will have alot shorter gears
