    your best mod for the money would be to throw in some ZC pistons or D16a1 pistons. You'll get more power out of that and a good cam then ALL of those other bolt on's combined. There's really no reason to do a complete bolt-on SOHC motor....unless you raise the compression.

    Good build using basically only stock parts:
    Dohc vtec throttle body
    D16Y8 intake manifold

    ANY 1.6 block (all have same bore/stroke) but best is D16Y8 because of it's lower miles
    ZC or D16a1 pistons
    D16y8 head

    with that combination you're looking at over 13:1 compression.
    Couple that with a sick cam and a nice header, you're looking at 160-170 WHP
    Dont waste youre money on aftermarket manifolds, fuel rails, ignitions, injectors, etc.

    you just said exactly what i said.
    D16Y8 w/ ZC (P29) pistons
    i think 160 is doable with tuning.

    All the SOHC D16 blocks are the same except for the pistons.
